The Russian Ministry of Defense published maps of the Kharkiv region, which showed a significant withdrawal of the Russian army from this area, where a large-scale Ukrainian counter-attack is continuing, with Moscow not acknowledging the extent of losses that Kyiv is talking about.
During its daily briefing on Sunday, the ministry presented the maps in a video that showed that the Russian army no longer controls only a small part of the territory located in the east of the Kharkiv region behind the Oskol River.
This comes after the maps used by the Defense Ministry in its briefing yesterday, Saturday, showed that the Russian army was occupying much larger areas in that region, as Kyiv announced important breakthroughs in recent days in the face of Russian forces.
Yesterday, Saturday, the Russian army announced that it had “withdrawn” its forces located in the Balaklya and Izyum regions (eastern Ukraine), with the aim of “reassembling” them near Donetsk (one of the capitals of pro-Russian separatists), while Kyiv reported progress in its counter-attack and inflicting “enemy”. Big losses.
At the beginning of the month, the Ukrainian army announced a counterattack in the south, before it carried out, during the past week, a sudden and abrupt breach of the Russian lines in the northeast in the Kharkiv region.
