He also thanked the Ukrainian military who “distinguished themselves in the direction of Kharkiv” and the Balakliya military who “returned full control to the city”.

The Ukrainian military also said it had inflicted losses on Russian forces in the Kherson region of southern Ukraine. Ukraine as well as in the Kharkiv region.

The General Staff, in an operational update on Saturday, said that “the liberation of settlements that were temporarily captured by the Russian occupiers in the Kharkiv region and towards South Buh continues. For the safety of our military, official information will be provided at a later date.”

The General Staff stated that “the command of the Russian occupation forces in the Kherson region is trying to strengthen the city of Kherson by sending in reserves. Thus, new enemy units were located in the regional center”.

He also reported that the Russians were trying to restore traffic on one of several damaged bridges on the Dnipro River, but the bridge remains under “fire control” by Ukrainian artillery.

The General Staff said the Russian 106th Airborne Division had lost nearly 60 troops to Ukrainian action in the past 24 hours. He said Russian commanders were trying to reconstitute the First Army Corps by transferring troops from other units.

Separately, the Ukrainian Operational Command in the south said Russian forces were continuing efforts “to increase ammunition stockpiles and manpower reserves, and are looking at alternative ways to deliver weapons and equipment.”

To that end, he said a new unit of Chechen forces, with about 1,300 troops, had arrived in the region, he said. THE CNN cannot independently verify the Ukrainian allegations.
