The Ukrainian army has evidently gained ground during its advances in southern Ukraine, which it began at the end of August. The general staff report on Wednesday recorded Russian air and artillery attacks on several towns in the Kherson region that were previously considered Russian controlled. However, Kyiv did not provide any specific information on progress.
Ukraine has been resisting the Russian invasion since February 24. Despite the counterattacks, more than 20 percent of Ukraine's territory, including the Crimea annexed in 2014, remains under Russian control.
