Ukrainian forces make ‘significant interest’ in Kharkiv region as continued offensive against Russia | World News

Ukrainian forces have continued to make “significant gains” in the Kharkiv region as the counter-offensive against Russia continues.

The British Ministry of Defense said Russia was likely to have withdrawn units from the area in northeastern Ukraine, in its daily intelligence update.

Horrible attack by Ukrainian forces In the past four days, Russia has ordered the withdrawal of troops from two frontline positions, marking a significant gain for the Ukrainian army.

President of the country Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the Russian military is “backing” and Ukraine has liberated about 2,000 square kilometers of territory since the beginning of September.

In his nightly address, he said: “The movement of our troops in different directions on the front continues.

“The Russian military these days are showing the best they can do. It shows that the army is back, and of course, it was the right decision for them.”

His comments came after Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said troops in the cities of Balakliia and Izyium, were being “regrouped” in the Donetsk region, part of the Donbas.


While Ukraine has recaptured territory in the Kharkiv region, the country’s second largest city, fighting continues around Kupiansk and Izyum, both strategically important cities.

Izyum was captured by Russia at the beginning of the war and has remained under their control ever since.

The Ukrainian flag has been spotted in villages, towns and cities in the eastern region.

Zelenskyy: The Russian army ‘shows the back to the viewer’

The last reactor at the Zaporizhzhia plant stopped working

In southern Ukraine, the last reactor at the Zaporizhzhia power plant was shut down after it was reconnected to the grid.

The six-reactor plant, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, was disconnected from the grid last week after all of its power lines were cut due to shelling in the area.

Energoatom, Ukraine’s nuclear power operator, said one of the power lines was restored late Saturday, allowing plant operators to shut down the last reactor.

While both sides accuse each other of shelling near the factory, which has been occupied by Russian troops since the beginning of the war, fighting around it has raised fears of a nuclear disaster.
