Battle Rages For Kreminna
Luhansk Oblast Governor Serhiy Haidai claims Ukrainian forces are “not far from” the city of Kreminna. Haidai claims Russian troops have withdrawn from Kreminna to Rubizhne, 15 km south of the front line. The Russian military claims Ukraine has lost 60 troops near Kreminna in the last 24 hours. Russia’s Federal Security Service says it liquidated a Ukrainian “sabotage group” while trying to enter the Bryansk region on December 25. Explosions were heard and a large fire has reportedly broken out in a warehouse in the Russian city of Novosibirsk.
