Ukrainian forces continue their counter-offensive in Kharkiv


A Ukrainian counterattack in the north continues to disrupt Russian supply lines.

Russian forces “did not carry out offensive operations in the direction of Kharkiv. The main efforts were focused on preventing the advance of our troops into the area of ​​the Vesele settlement,” the Ukrainian General Staff said on Friday.

The Ukrainians took a number of villages in this area east of Kharkiv.

CNN reported early Friday that two bridges in the area had been demolished, according to satellite images. It seems likely that the Russian units destroyed the bridges in an effort to protect their supply lines from further Ukrainian advances.

Elsewhere in the Kharkiv region, the Russians appear to use artillery sporadically but with lethal effect.

Thursday, the bombing of the city of Derhachi killed two people, according to the local administration, and destroyed the humanitarian center and medical facilities.

Derhachi is about 16 kilometers north of Kharkiv, which is Ukraine’s second largest city.
