هجوم أوكرانيا المضاد يكتسب زخما

By Jordi Bou

June 9, 2023 - شن الجيش الأوكراني هجمات على القوات الروسية المحتلة في منطقة زابوريجيا المهمة، فيما يبدو أنه أول العمليات المدرعة الثقيلة لهجومه المضاد الذي طال انتظاره.

Russian officials and military bloggers saay Ukrainian troops – backed by tanks, artillery and drones –are trying to advance south of the town of Orikhiv, BBC reports.

Vladimir Rogov, a Russian-installed local official, said Russian troops were holding their positions amid "active fighting" towards the city of Tokmak, seen as a key target for Ukraine as it seeks to advance to the Sea of Azov.

Ukrainian forces are hoping to secure a breakthrough in the south and sever the “land bridge” connecting Russia with Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia and Kherson provinces, cutting off supply lines to the Crimean peninsula currently under Moscow’s control.
