Russian forces continue to gradually advance in an attempt to encircle the town of Lysychansk. Since June 25, Russian troops have advanced another 2 kilometers in the area of the Lisichansk oil refinery south of the city.
This was reported by the UK Ministry of Defense on Twitter.
There is also, as the summary notes, a real possibility that the June 27 missile strike on a shopping center in Kremenchuk was aimed at hitting nearby infrastructure.
Russia's inaccuracy in launching long-range strikes has previously resulted in mass civilian casualties, including at the Kramatorsk railway station on April 9, 2022, the British Defense Ministry recalled.
"Russian planners are likely still willing to accept a high level of collateral damage when they see a military need to hit a target. It is almost certain that Russia will continue to launch strikes in an attempt to prevent Ukrainian forward forces from resupplying," the report said.
It is noted that Russia has fielded major units of six different armies, but has achieved only tactical success near Severodonetsk. Russian military forces are increasingly depleted.
