Ukrainian defenders are primarily working on timely detection of movements of Russian infantry groups.

During the first days of the offensive in Kharkiv region, Russia actively deployed armored vehicles. However, now the Russian command is predominantly sending infantry groups along the forest belts. The Ukrainian command has been observing this trend for the past 3-4 days.

Spokesman for the National Guard, Ruslan Muzychuk, told about this on the air of the telethon.

Ukrainian defenders primarily work on timely detection of movements of Russian infantry groups.

"Recently, we have seen that the enemy is deploying infantry groups that are trying to penetrate the border line," Muzychuk said.

The Russians are making attempts to advance and take positions near populated areas. They move along forest belts and certain sections of roads.

Currently, snipers and FPV drones continue to target the Russian army in Kharkiv region. The drones proved quite effective on the first day of the escalation in the northern border region. In one day, National Guard forces destroyed approximately 10 units of armored vehicles.

At that time, Russia was still actively using armored vehicles, but in the last few days, mostly infantry groups have been advancing. According to Muzychuk, this was facilitated in particular, by the effective use of UAVs.

"Effective work with drones helps resolve many threatening situations in this direction," the National Guard Spokesman said.
