War in Ukraine: “Ukrainian flag returned to Kharkiv areas,” says Zelensky

Its president Ukrainian, Volodymyr Zelenskyannounced in his nightly address that the Ukrainian army had recaptured several territories in his region Kharkiv (northeast), which were located under the control of Russian invadersbut without going into details.

“This week we have good news from Kharkiv region,” Zelensky said in a video message. Without specifying which areas he was referring to, he spoke of “locations where the Ukrainian flag has returned”.

Since last week, Ukraine has launched a counter-offensive in the southern part of its territory and claims that it is achieving success, while on the other hand, the Russia claims to be inflicting heavy casualties on Ukrainian forces.

The Kharkiv region has been partially under the control of the Russian military since the initial stages of the invasion that began on February 24. The city of the same name – Ukraine’s second largest – has been bombed, but Russian troops have never been able to capture it.

This week we have good news from the Kharkiv region. Probably, you all have already seen reports about the activity of Ukrainian defenders. And I think every citizen feels proud of our warriors. It is a well-deserved pride, a right feeling. Now is not the time to name the settlements to which the Ukrainian flag returns. But it’s time to say thank you to the 25th airborne brigade, the 92nd separate mechanized brigade and the 80th airborne assault brigade for their bravery and heroism shown during combat missions. I also express gratitude today to the 406th separate artillery brigade for the extremely successful hits in the areas where the occupiers are concentrated in the south of our country and to the 60th separate infantry brigade, which consistently advances our positions. Each success of our military in one direction or another changes the general situation along the entire frontline in favor of Ukraine . The more difficult it is for the occupiers, the more losses they have, the better the positions of our defenders in Donbas will be, the more reliable the defense of Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv and the cities of the Dnipropetrovsk region will be, the faster we will be able to liberate the Azov region and the entire south.
