Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Monday that the Ukrainian army is continuing its advance against Russian forces and has liberated new towns in a number of regions, but he did not give further details.
“The progress that our army is making today continues, for all our fighters,” Zelensky said in his nightly video address, according to the Reuters news agency.
He added, “New population centers have been liberated in several regions. Heavy fighting continues in several sectors of the front.
Ukrainian forces have made their biggest advance into the south of the country since the war began, flowing across Russian lines and advancing rapidly along the Dnipro River, threatening the supply lines of thousands of Russian troops.
Kyiv did not provide much information about the gains, but Russian sources admitted that the Ukrainian tank attack advanced tens of kilometers along the western bank of the river, and Kyiv recaptured a number of villages along the way.
