The head of the "police" of Balakliya, installed by the Russian occupation forces, was detained for "cooperation with the RF Armed Forces." This is reported by the State Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine in Telegram.
The report says that in the de-occupied territory it was possible to “promptly identify a traitor”, who was previously one of the leaders of the Balakliya police. When the city was occupied by Russian troops, he volunteered to cooperate. After the UAF liberated the city, the traitor decided to flee to the so-called LPR, but was detained in Kupyansk.
On September 6, fierce battles began in the area of Russian-occupied Balakleya, Izyumsky district, Kharkiv region, and the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine launched a counteroffensive. This information was confirmed to The Insider by Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in reserve, military expert Roman Svitan. According to him, it was from Balakleya that the Russian group in Izyum was planning an offensive to the south or southwest in order to cut off supplies from Slavyansk. On September 8, the Armed Forces of Ukraine entered the city.
By September 10, Izyum returned under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine also reached Kupyansk and the Oskol River.
