Ukrainian forces push Russians out of Kharkiv region, back over border:
The ongoing Ukrainian counteroffensive around the northeastern city of Kharkiv has pushed Russian troops out of Ukraine and back over the border, officials in Kyiv said Monday.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense posted a video on Facebook Monday showing troops with the 227 Battalion 127th Brigade of the Ukrainian Territorial Defense Forces standing at a blue and yellow border post.
“Together for the win!” the ministry posted.
Ukrainian claims of reaching the Russian border come after a swift series of Ukrainian counterattacks outside Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.
Ukrainian forces last week succeeded in pushing Russian artillery out of range of the city, taking back a series of northern suburbs in the process. Kharkiv is located in northeastern Ukraine, some 25 miles from the northern border with Russia.
Oleh Sinegubov, governor of the Kharkiv oblast, praised the troops on Telegram. --->READ MORE HERE
Troops defending Kharkiv reached Russian border, Ukraine says:
Ukraine said on Monday troops defending the country's second-largest city, Kharkiv, had repelled Russian forces and advanced as far as the border with Russia.
Reuters could not immediately verify Ukraine's battlefield account and it was not clear how many troops had reached the Russian border and where.
If confirmed, it would suggest a Ukrainian counter-offensive is having increasing success in pushing back Russian forces in the northeast after Western military agencies said Moscow's offensive in the Donbas region had stalled. read more
