Ukrainian army stops Russian troops in Kharkiv sector, conducts counteroffensive - General Staff:
In the Kharkiv sector, Russians are on the offensive, aiming to create a buffer zone, but the enemy has been stopped, and the situation is under control
Colonel Ihor Prokhorenko, a representative of the Main Operational Department of the Ukrainian Armed Forces' General Staff, said this at a briefing in Kyiv.
He noted that the situation at the front is complicated, the Defense Forces are holding the line in eastern and southern Ukraine, inflicting fire on the Russian troops. Fierce fighting continues almost along the entire front line.
"The main actions are taking place in the Kharkiv and Donetsk regions. As for the Kharkiv sector, the Russian army is conducting offensive operations to create a buffer zone. The enemy has been stopped, the situation is under control, and counteroffensive actions are underway," noted Colonel Ihor Prokhorenko.
According to him, the invading forces are also trying to advance in the eastern Kharkiv region and plan to bypass Kupyansk from the east, but without success.
The situation is under control in the Sumy and Chernihiv regions. Russia is amassing troops and launching air and artillery strikes on border settlements, using UAVs.
Colonel Prokhorenko added that the Ukrainian Defense Forces are aware of Russia's plans and are doing everything to disrupt them. In particular, they are taking measures to allocate reserves and firepower to seize the initiative on the battlefield, actively engaging artillery, aviation, and unmanned systems. --->READ MORE HERE

Zelenskiy says Ukrainian forces now control area where Russia pushed into Kharkiv region:
President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Friday that Ukrainian forces had secured "combat control" of areas where Russian troops staged an incursion this month in northern parts of Kharkiv region.
"Our soldiers have now managed to take combat control of the border area where the Russian occupiers entered," Zelenskiy said in his nightly video address.
Zelenskiy's comments, after holding a meeting of military and regional officials in Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, appeared to be at variance with comments by Russian officials.
Viktor Vodolatskiy, a member of Russia's State Duma lower house of parliament, was quoted by Tass news agency as saying Russian forces controlled more than half the territory of the town of Vovchansk, 5 km (three miles) inside the border.
Vodolatskiy was quoted as saying that once Vovchansk was secured, Russian forces would target three cities in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region -- Sloviansk, Kramatorsk and Pokrovsk.
Reuters was unable to verify independently battlefield accounts from either side.
Russian forces pushed into border regions of Ukraine's Kharkiv region this month and Russia's Defence Ministry said they had secured control of about 12 settlements.
Zelenskiy and other Ukrainian officials had been reporting success in "stabilising" the area.
The Ukrainian military's General Staff, in its evening report on Friday said the situation in Vovchansk was "tense but controlled by the defence forces" --->READ MORE HERE
