For the second day in a row, Russians have been extensively using armored vehicles in the direction of the village of Novyi.
Yesterday, Russian units attempted to penetrate Ukrainian combat lines with two tanks and 21 infantry fighting vehicles but suffered losses and retreated. The occupiers deployed a tank, two infantry fighting vehicles, and two “Tiger” armored vehicles. Ukrainian soldiers destroyed the equipment during the battle, forcing the enemy to retreat again.
