The Ukrainians had a symbolic success in conducting a counter-offensive in the eastern Kharkiv region. They managed to move closer to the Russian border.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine released a video of several dozen soldiers in the national colours standing at the border post of the country. The Ukrainian military has already reported in recent days that it is gradually pushing out Russian troops near Kharkiv. Russia has already withdrawn its troops from northern Ukraine after they were arrested near Kyiv.
What is more, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine published a video titled “Get off My Land.”
