Key events of the day

Successes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces

📌 Now it's official: the Armed Forces of Ukraine released Balaklia! In total, the Ukrainian military has already de-occupied more than 20 settlements in the Kharkiv region.

In three days, the Ukrainian military advanced almost 50 km in the Kharkiv direction!

📌 The counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is still in the early stages, but progress is steady, said American General Mark Milley. He noted that Ukrainians carry out very targeted offensive attacks. He added that the Armed Forces hit about 400 targets with the help of HIMARS.

📌 The Ukrainian military can liberate Kupiansk in the Kharkiv region within the next 72 hours, the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) believes. The loss of the city and other areas of the enemy's rear will not allow russia to conduct offensive operations and defend itself.

📌 Military experts compare the actions of the Armed Forces with the strategy developed by Israel — the cascade destruction of defenses. When the offensive is carried out practically on the shoulders of the fleeing enemy. The speed of the offensive is such that the enemy does not have time to stop somewhere and build a new line of defense. This is how the Armed Forces of Ukraine are currently operating.

📌 During the 10 days of the counteroffensive, the Ukrainian Armed Forces issued tickets "to the Kobzon concert" to more than four thousand occupiers.
