Zelensky: "There is no place for occupiers"

Zelensky: “There is no place for occupiers”

As part of its counterattack, the Ukrainian army recaptured about 2,000 square kilometers in areas formerly occupied by Russia, according to President Volodymyr Zelensky.

In his video address on Saturday evening, Zelensky thanked all the soldiers who took part in the recovery operations in the Kharkiv region in eastern Ukraine.

According to Ukrainian sources, more than 30 settlements have been restored in the Kharkiv region of eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian head of state said that the Russian army made a good decision to flee: “The occupiers have no place in Ukraine and they will have no place.”

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that Russian soldiers had been withdrawn from the strategically important city of Izyum. Russian forces were also due to withdraw from the city of Balaklija, which the Ukrainians reported liberated last week. The official justification for the withdrawal was that the regrouping should strengthen the units in the neighboring Donetsk region.

Separatist leader Denis Pushlin described the situation in the city of Liman in the Donbas region as “difficult”. Heavy fighting is taking place in the breakaway republic of Donetsk.

More than six months after the Russian invasion, Ukraine was also able to carry out successful counterattacks with the help of Western weapons.
