Quote: "We discussed the situation at the frontline. We have managed to seize the strategic initiative, the Security and Defence Forces of Ukraine continue to conduct offensive operations, and we are making progress.
The enemy is putting up a strong fight while suffering heavy losses. They are trying to hold on to their positions through massive mining of the area."
Details: Zaluzhnyi also briefed Milley on the current needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces for weapons, ammunition and mine clearance equipment and thanked him for the military aid package announced by the United States earlier.

Quote from Maliar: "Our defence forces are continuing to mount an offensive on the Melitopol, Berdiansk and Bakhmut fronts.
They are clawing back every metre of our land from the enemy in tough battles. They are making gains.
Meanwhile, enemy forces are continuing their attempts to advance on the Lyman, Avdiivka and Marinka fronts, but are unsuccessful. [...]
Enemy forces are amassing all their reserves – even a marine brigade that had earlier fled Kherson.
On the Berdiansk front, [Ukraine’s defence forces] have advanced by some 1,300 metres."
Details: Maliar also reported that Ukrainian defence forces are also making gains on the Rivnopil–Volodyne axis, where they are currently consolidating their recently captured positions and inflicting significant losses on Russian forces: "They are practically bleeding the enemy’s offensive capabilities dry, destroying their equipment, storage depots and command centres, and killing their personnel."
On the Bakhmut front in eastern Ukraine, Ukraine’s defence forces have regained the initiative. --->READ MORE HERE
