Ukrainian Counterattack Continues
As the Ukrainian counterattack against Russian forces in the south of the country continues, the Ukrainian army carried out 14 raids on Russian sites today, Sunday in 24 hours.
Attacks Concentrated on Zaporizhia and Mariupol
The Agency/Al-Hadath correspondent also reported that Ukrainian forces are concentrating their attacks on the Zaporizhia and Mariupol axis.
He indicated that the Marinka Front in Dsk is seeing fierce fighting recently.
Russia is responding on the battlefield
This comes as the two sides to the conflict are trading victories. The Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday that its forces managed to repel a series of Ukrainian attacks in three sectors of the battlefront, as he said that Ukraine is pressing harder in the Zaporizhia region.
And a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Igor Konashenkov, announced that Russian forces thwarted attacks launched by Ukrainian forces on the axes of Zaporizhia, South Dsk and Dsk.
As Konashenkov stated in a press release, the Zaporizhia axis witnessed the most intense military action, noting that Ukrainian forces carried out a failed attack with three battlegroups, supported by tanks and armored fighting vehicles, in the cities of Novopokrovka, Novodanilevka and Malaya Tokmachka in Zaporizhia Oblast.
Difficult, but it goes on
Interestingly, the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, confirmed last week that the counterattack, expected in spring, but has been postponed to avoid heavy human losses, it is difficult, but it is going forward.
While many Ukrainian officials have confirmed that their country’s forces have achieved important results, recovering several villages occupied by the Russians.
However, Moscow has downplayed these “charges,” saying its forces would thwart this attack and bury it in its own soil.
Between this and that, many observers expect that the battles will not be easy for the two sides, and that the war will last longer, in light of the blockage of any solution horizon or the possibility of resuming negotiations between the two sides.
