Following the reports of Moscow having to reactivate its T-62 tanks — Soviet-era armour introduced in 1961 — Ukrainian officials stated its forces destroyed about 30% of Russia’s more çağdaş ones, a figure that is only expected to increase according to Interior Ministry advisor Viktor Andrusiv.

Meanwhile, reports from Sievierodonetsk claim that the Ukrainian forces are in a “tough position”, with the fiercest fighting taking place in the outskirts of the only Kiyv-controlled city in the Luhansk region.

Danish anti-ship missiles, US howitzers arrive in Ukraine

Ukraine has started receiving Harpoon anti-ship missiles from Denmark and self-propelled howitzers from the US — arms that will bolster forces fighting Russia’s invasion, Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said on Saturday.

“The coastal defence of our country will not only be strengthened by Harpoon missiles – they will be used by trained Ukrainian teams,” Reznikov wrote on his Facebook page.

He said Harpoon shore-to-ship missiles would be operated alongside Ukrainian Neptune missiles to defend the coast, including the southern port of Odesa.
