Serhii Haidai, Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration, claimed Ukrainian troops struck the base in the occupied city of Kadiivka in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine. He wrote on Twitter: “The Armed Forces of Ukraine struck enemy fortifications in occupied Kadiivka, killing about 200 Russian paratroopers.”

Mr Haidai said Russians had been based in a hotel in Kadiivka since 2014. Moscow claimed today (August 26) Ukrainian troops fired 10 HIMARS missiles at the city, according to a report in the Kyiv Post newspaper.

The same publication reported this is not the first attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Kadiivka. Ukrainian troops hit ammunition depots in the city on July 15 and 18. They also hit Russian barracks in the city on July 24, according to the Kyiv Post.

Mr Haidai added that thanks to the work of Ukrainian partisans in the Luhansk region, the Russian occupiers had decided against holding a pseudo-referendum on the region joining Russia in the near future, the Kyiv Post reported.

The Governor of Luhansk said supporters of Ukraine in the region have become more active of late and, combined with Ukrainian troops, are destroying Russian warehouses and bases.

Ukraine’s troops attacked a Russian military base in Lysychansk, Luhansk, on August 16, killing about 100 Russian soldiers, according to Ukrainian media.

Two days before that, Mr Haidai said there was a strike on the headquarters of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hired mercenaries, the Private Military Company Wagner (PMC Wagner), in Popasnaya.

It comes weeks after Russia changed its war aims to focus on securing the Donbas, an eastern region formed of the Donetsk and Luhansk provinces, already partly held by its separatist proxies. Moscow’s move unleashed the most devastating ground battles of the war.

In mid-May, an entire battalion of Russian troops was wiped out trying to cross the Siverskiy Donets River. Satellite photos showed dozens of destroyed armoured vehicles scattered across either bank.
