Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Ukrainian forces advance southward, mirroring success in the east” – below is their description.
Ukrainian forces achieved their biggest breakthrough in the country’s south since Russia invaded, pushing across Moscow’s defence lines on Monday and advancing along the Dnieper River, recapturing a number of villages along the way and threatening enemy supply lines.
Ukraine’s advance targets supply lines for as many as 25,000 Russian troops on the west bank of the Dnieper.
Ukraine has already destroyed the main bridges, forcing Russian forces to use makeshift crossings. A substantial advance downriver could cut them off entirely.
Kyiv gave little information about the gains in the south, but Russian sources acknowledged that Ukrainian troops had advanced dozens of kilometres along the river’s west bank, recapturing a number of villages along the way.
