The Ukrainian military is moving to counteroffensive actions in some areas of the front.
This was reported by Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Malyar.
She noted that the Ukrainian military continues its defense, which began on February 24, 2022.
"The defensive operation includes everything, including counteroffensive actions. Therefore, in some areas we are moving to offensive actions," she wrote.
Malyar noted that the epicenter of hostilities remains the Bakhmut direction. There, Ukrainian fighters are moving along a fairly wide front. They achieve success and occupy the dominant heights.
At the same time, the Russian occupiers are on the defensive and want to hold their positions.
In the south, the enemy is also on the defensive. Fighting of local significance continues there.
The deputy defense minister also noted that the occupiers are actively spreading information about the counteroffensive, as they need to divert attention from the defeat in the Bakhmut direction.
Counteroffensive of the Armed Forces
For a long time, the Ukrainian political and military command reported on the preparation of our fighters for a counteroffensive. Recently, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that the Ukrainian military is already ready for counteroffensive actions, but it is not known when exactly they will begin.
