Informe de situación - día 209

By Jordi Bou

September 20, 2022 - Las tropas ucranianas avanzan más hacia el este, dice Kiev, preparando el camino para un asalto potencial contra las fuerzas de Moscú en la región de Donbás cuando el presidente Zelenskiy solicita más armas occidentales, informa Reuters.

Ukraine's armed forces had regained complete control of the village of Bilohorivka, and were preparing to retake all of Luhansk province from Russian occupiers, provincial Governor Serhiy Gaidai said. The village is only 10 km (6 miles) west of Lysychansk city, which fell to the Russians after weeks of grinding battles in July.

Ukraine has recaptured the village of Bilohorivka, close to the eastern city of Lysychansk, in a small but symbolic victory that means Russia no longer has full control of the Luhansk region, one of Russian president Vladimir Putin’s key war aims.

Luhansk’s governor, Serhiy Haidai, said troops were now preparing to retake all of Luhansk province from Russian occupiers.

In a sign of nervousness from a Moscow-backed administration in Donbas about the success of Ukraine's recent offensive, its leader called for urgent referendums on the region becoming part of Russia.

Denis Pushilin, head of the Moscow-based separatist administration in Donetsk, called on his fellow separatist leader in Luhansk to combine efforts toward preparing a referendum on joining Russia.
