Kyiv’s counteroffensive begins in southern Ukraine:
The Ukrainian military launched a long-expected counter attack in the Kherson region Tuesday, as President Volodymyr Zelensky warned occupying Russian troops to run for their lives.
“If they want to survive, it’s time for the Russian military to run away — go home,” he said in his nightly address. “Ukraine is taking back its own [land].”
The ground offensive — the first major effort to take back a large swath of territory since Russian forces invaded in February — comes after weeks of Ukrainian rocket strikes against ammunition depots, bridges and supply lines in occupied territory.
It also follows a series of bold operations by Ukrainian forces, including multiple strikes against Russian bases in occupied Crimea — south of the Kherson province and long though to be out of the reach of Kyiv’s arsenal.
A verifiable accounting of battlefield gains was difficult to come by on Tuesday.
Ukrainian newspaper Ukrainska Pravda relayed Russian reports that occupying forces were coming under fire Monday night. By Tuesday, some villages in the region were rumored to have been liberated.
Oleksiy Arestovych, a senior advisor to Zelensky, said that Russian defenses had been “broken through in a few hours” by Ukrainian advances. --->READ MORE HERE
