In the Kharkiv region, the city of Vovchansk is being actively defended by Belarusian soldiers to prevent Russians from occupying the city.

The Belarusian Volunteer Corps said that in May their fighters had held back the first wave of invaders in the city.

“Back then, there were battles for every house, every quarter of Vovchansk,” the volunteers said.

Now the Belarusians are defending their positions together with fighters from the Russian Volunteer Corps, which is fighting on the side of Ukraine.

“Our groups broke through the Russians’ lines to join the established defense line together with the Russian Volunteer Corps,” the Belarusians said.

The Belarusian corps engaged its American HMMWVs and other vehicles in the fighting in the city.

This unit of Belarusian fighters was created in Ukraine in 2022. Prior to that, the unit’s leaders were members of various units of Belarusian volunteers.

The Belarusian Volunteer Corps first showed footage of the defense of the city of Vovchansk on May 18, when soldiers on HMMWVs were rescuing the wounded.

The Ukrainian General Staff said that the operational situation in the Kharkiv sector remained complicated and was changing dynamically.

Fighting is ongoing in the areas of Pylyna-Lukiantsi, Pylyna-Hlyboke, Pylyna-Oliynykove, Murom-Buhuvatka.

“In the Kharkiv sector, Russian terrorists have tried to push our troops from their positions three times since the beginning of the day. Combat is ongoing in two locations near Vovchansk,” the General Staff said.
