Haidai's Quote: "All free settlements of the Luhansk region are hot spots. Right now there are gun battles in Bilohorivtsi, Voievodivtsi and in the direction of Popasna.

Our troops have retreated from Popasna. The Armed Forces of Ukraine are now in stronger positions, which they had prepared ahead of time."

Details: Haidai insisted that the Russians’ plans "to completely seize the Luhansk region before 9 May" are unrealistic.
