Russian forces ‘withdrawing from Kharkiv area’

Latest reports suggest something of a turning point around Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, although it has been one of the priority targets for the Russians.

“The main activity of the enemy in the Kharkiv region was the withdrawal of its units from the city of Kharkiv,” said a spokesman for the Ukrainian General Staff.

“The gradual liberation of the Kharkiv region proves that we will leave no one to the enemy,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his daily message on Friday evening, announcing that the recapture of territory that had fallen into Russian hands was continuing.

“As of today, 1,015 districts have been liberated, six more in the last 24 hours,” he said.

Water, electricity, communications, transport and public services had been restored, he said, adding that he was keeping in mind the towns and territories still under Russian occupation.
