MADRID, 9 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky, has assured that "more than 30" areas of the Kharkov region have been "liberated" since the start at the end of August of a counteroffensive with which the Ukrainian forces want to recover the lost ground against the Russian ones
Zelenski, who had already assured this week that progress was being made, has put figures on the areas that are already under full control of his troops. He hopes to continue moving forward "gradually" to return the Ukrainian flag to the towns seized by Russia.
In a speech to the nation, the president has urged the inhabitants of these territories to inform the Ukrainian military of the crimes committed by the "occupants", with the aim of collecting as much evidence as possible.
However, the governor of Kharkov, Oleg Sinegubov, has urged the population that had fled the now "liberated" areas not to return for the time being, due to the destruction of key infrastructure and the poor state of basic supplies, reports UNIAN agency.
