Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said on Aug. 10 that Ukrainian troops had achieved partial success in the Urozhaine direction, east of the recently liberated village of Staromaiorske.

Earlier on Aug. 15, Maliar said that the number of Russian attacks along the eastern front line has decreased as Russia seeks to regroup and restore its forces.

Russian troops also attempted to advance in the areas of Kupiansk in Kharkiv Oblast, as well as Avdiivka and Marinka in Donetsk Oblast, the Genearal Staff said.

Due to increased Russian attacks, the local authorities began a mandatory evacuation of civilians from 37 settlements in the area around Kupiansk on Aug. 10.
