Counteroffensive operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the South

This summer, Ukrainian soldiers have intensified their offensive actions in the southern regions of Ukraine, specifically in the Melitopol and Berdyansk sectors in the Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk regions. During this time, they have managed to liberate over 10 populated areas.
