It has been fruitful over the past few days

As the Russian military operation in Ukraine continues today, Tuesday, a senior Ukrainian official said that Ukraine’s counterattack against Russian forces has been “particularly fruitful” in the past few days And the Ukrainian forces are fulfilling the main tasks.

The comments by Oleksiy Danilov, secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, are Kiev’s latest positive assessment of the counteroffensive, which began a month ago, even though Moscow does not acknowledge that Ukraine is making gains.

Russia, which launched a military operation in Ukraine in February 2022, still controls large swaths of territory in eastern and southern Ukraine, but Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Monday that Ukrainian forces had made progress after a “difficult” week.

“At this stage, which is witnessing continuous combat operations, the defense forces of Ukraine are achieving the first task, which is to destroy the largest possible number of manpower, equipment, fuel depots, military vehicles, command posts, artillery and air forces of the Russian army,” Danilov wrote on Twitter. “The past few days have been particularly fruitful,” he added, without giving any details about the battlefield.

On the other hand, a spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Igor Konashenkov, announced today, Tuesday, that the Russian armed forces, within the framework of the special military operation in Ukraine, bombed 85 Ukrainian artillery units, within one day. In a media briefing, the spokesman said: “The Russian army’s fighters and helicopters, missile forces and artillery bombed, within one day, 85 Ukrainian artillery units, and 102 sites for gathering personnel and military equipment.”

A spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that the Russian forces managed to eliminate more than 50 Ukrainian soldiers and destroy an American-made M-777 cannon on the Kherson axis. Konashenkov said, “On the Kherson axis, up to 50 Ukrainian soldiers were eliminated and 3 vehicles and a Msta-B howitzer were destroyed, in addition to an American-made M-777 cannon, during the last 24 hours.”

Ukraine said on Monday that forces had recaptured more territory on the eastern and southern fronts, although Deputy Defense Minister Hana Malyar said fighting had intensified around the city of Bakhmut, which Russian forces captured in May.

Malyar said Ukrainian forces had recaptured 37.4 square kilometers of territory in fierce fighting in a week.

Andrei Kovalev, a spokesman for the Ukrainian army, said today, Tuesday, that Ukraine continues to put pressure on Russian forces north and south of Bakhmut, and that it has achieved “partial success” despite fierce Russian resistance and fierce fighting.

He added that the Ukrainian army succeeded in repelling the attempt to advance by the Russian forces in the directions of Liman, Avdiivka and Marinka in eastern Ukraine.

He was unable to verify the situation on the battlefield, as each side says the other is suffering heavy losses.

Russia said on Tuesday that Ukraine had attacked Moscow with at least five drones that were shot down or intercepted, and one of the capital’s main airports had to reroute flights for a few hours.

The Kherson Prosecutor General’s Office said that Russian bombing this morning killed a man and a woman in the city in southern Ukraine.
