Ukraine war latest: Kyiv reports new gains in the south, Prigozhin accuses Russian army of attacking Wagner:
The General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces reported on June 23 that Ukrainian forces had achieved some territorial gains along the southern front line.
Supported by artillery, Ukrainian forces have advanced in the directions of Novodanylivka-Robotyne and Mala Tokmachka-Novofedorivka, according to the General Staff. Russian forces are apparently mobilizing reserves in an attempt to impede Ukraine's progress in the direction of Orikhiv and recapture previously-held positions.
Ukrainian forces in Donetsk Oblast are also holding back Russian advances in the directions of Lyman, Avdiivka, and Marinka. The most intense battles are taking place near Bilohorivka in Luhansk Oblast and at Sieverne, Avdiivka, Marinka, and Pobieda in Donetsk Oblast, the General Staff added.
Since June 5, Ukraine has been engaged in a counteroffensive in Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia oblasts, aiming to reclaim more of its territory currently under Russian control.
President Volodymyr Zelensky said that although the counteroffensive has been off to a slow start, it will gain momentum.
Prigozhin accuses Russian army of attacking Wagner, threatens response
Wagner mercenary group founder Yevgeny Prigozhin claimed in a video posted on Telegram on June 23 that the Russian Defense Ministry attacked the group's bases in the rearguard.
"A missile attack was launched on camps of the Wagner Group. There are many victims. According to eyewitnesses, the attack was launched from the rearguard, meaning it was launched by the Russian Defense Ministry," Prigozhin said.
"This bastard will be stopped," the Wagner boss added, referring to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.--->READ MORE HERE
Wagner coup highlights Russia’s ‘chaos,’ Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky says:
The armed munity on the Kremlin led by mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin highlights Russia’s “full-scale weakness,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Saturday, adding “no lie can hide” the “chaos” inside the country.
“Russia’s weakness is obvious. Full-scale weakness,” Zelensky wrote on Twitter. “And the longer Russia keeps its troops and mercenaries on our land, the more chaos, pain, and problems it will have for itself later.”
“Everyone who chooses the path of evil destroys themselves,” Zelensky also wrote. “… Who terrorizes with missiles, and when they are shot down, humiliates himself to receive Shahed drones. Who despises people and throws hundreds of thousands into the war, in order to eventually barricade himself in the Moscow region from those whom he himself armed.
“For a long time, Russia used propaganda to mask its weakness and the stupidity of its government. And now there is so much chaos that no lie can hide it.”
He also boasted it’s “obvious” Ukraine “is able to protect Europe from the spread of Russian evil and chaos.”
“We keep our resilience, unity and strength. All our commanders, all our soldiers know what to do. Glory to Ukraine!” said Zelensky, whose country has been fighting off a Russian invasion since February 2022.
Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed Saturday to crush the armed rebellion by Prigozhin, who led his troops out of Ukraine and into a key city south of Moscow. --->READ MORE HERE
