Volodymyr Zelensky says Ukrainian forces have taken over places near Kharkiv

Ukraine War: Ukraine has been carrying out a counter-offensive in the south of the country since last week.


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Wednesday that Kyiv troops had recaptured several settlements in the Kharkiv region in the northeast of the country from Russian forces.

“This week we have good news from the Kharkiv region,” Zelensky said in his daily address, adding that “this is not the right time to name those settlements, where the Ukrainian flag has returned.”

Observers have reported a breakthrough by Ukrainian forces in the Kharkiv region in recent days, with no official confirmation of potential gains.

Ukraine has been leading a counter-offensive in the south of the country since last week, where it has also claimed the recapture of several villages.

The Kharkiv region has been partly occupied by Russian troops since the start of the invasion launched on February 24.

The city of the same name, the second largest in Ukraine, is regularly the target of deadly bombardments, but Russian troops have never managed to seize it.
