Frontline situation

According to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), Ukrainian forces continue to engage in counteroffensive operations in the vicinity of the administrative border between Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia regions. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Russian forces lament having had to vacate their positions in Urozhaine.

In particular, the ISW asserts that Ukrainian military has managed to maintain a presence on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region. However, experts remain cautious about designating these positions as established bridgeheads or footholds at this stage.
