As a result of a powerful strike on the advanced command post of the 2nd Army of the Russian invaders in the Kharkov region, the Russian Major General Andrey Simonov was liquidated. According to information from sources close to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the general was killed as a result of an attack by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Izyum region.

It was officially reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had destroyed the enemy command post in the village of Zabavnoe, Kharkiv region. The corresponding video with footage of the defeat of the positions of the Russian invaders was published on the Web.

Alexei Arestovich commented on the blow to the headquarters in Izyum:

"Two strikes on Izyum: the headquarters of the Airborne Forces, the headquarters of the second combined arms. Even on the lower border, count 100 corpses in one place, 200 in another, at least 100 in the third. The upper limit is 200-300"

Arestovich also commented on the information about the possible destruction of the chief of staff of the Russian Airborne Forces, General Simonov, which appeared in the media earlier on Saturday.
