Scouts say that the Ukrainian Defense Forces launched offensive operations in the south of the Kharkiv region on September 6 – advanced units advanced 50 km deep into Russian-occupied territory on a narrow front.
It is noted that the Russians were probably taken by surprise, and the sector was held weakly, due to which the Ukrainian units captured or surrounded several cities.
The British stressed that the Izyum grouping of the Russian army is likely to become more isolated, the Armed Forces of Ukraine threaten Kupyansk, the capture of which will be a serious blow to the occupiers, since it is located on the supply lines of the front line in the Donbass.
Since Ukrainian operations also continue in the Kherson region, the Russian defensive front is under pressure on both the northern and southern flanks, the report stated.
