Voenkor Sladkov said that preparations for the surrender of cities have begun in Kharkov and Sumy
The Ukrainian authorities are preparing the cities of Sumy and Kharkiv for a possible evacuation and strengthening of the defense, according to the message of the military commander Alexander Sladkov in his telegram channel.
Major enterprises have already begun evacuating cities, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces are strengthening the second line of defense.
Details are not given, but they are promised to be announced later.
Formerly Commander of the United Ukrainian forces Serhiy Naev urged residents of the border areas of the Sumy region to evacuate. The general noted that he personally convinced one family to leave their home because of the immediate danger.
In mid-June, warehouses with AFU equipment were destroyed by a missile strike in the Sumy region. It is also possible that the blow was delivered to the personnel stationed in Shostka.
