Ukraine has recovered 6 thousand square kilometers of land occupied by Russia
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy claimed that Ukrainian troops have recaptured 6,000 square kilometers of land occupied by Russia in a counter-offensive. Apart from the land occupied during the ongoing Ukraine-Russia war, he also demanded the restoration of the land previously occupied by the Russians.
Volodymyr said that in September, Ukrainian troops recaptured more than 6,000 square kilometers of land occupied by the Russians in the east and south of Ukraine. British media BBC Online gave this news on Tuesday. However, the BBC was unable to independently verify Zelensky’s claim.
Meanwhile, Russia has also acknowledged the loss of several key cities in the northeastern Kharkiv region to Ukrainian forces. And some military analysts see Ukraine’s resistance as a possible advance in the country’s war.
Moscow, however, is describing its recent troop withdrawal from the region as a “regroupment” of the army. Not only that, Moscow claimed that the troops were withdrawn to focus on Luhansk and Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.
Moscow’s claim has become a mockery at home. Many social media users are calling this move by Moscow a shameful withdrawal of troops.
