الغزو الروسي لأوكرانيا - اليوم 551

By Phil Bainbridge

August 28, 2023 - Ukraine claims it has liberated the town of Robotyne in Zaporizhya Oblast and its forces are slowly advancing in the direction of Melitopol
and Berdyansk.

Ukrainian forces are continuing to advance south of Bakhmut but are defending against a Russian offensive at Kupiansk near Kharkiv. The Ukrainian counteroffensive appears to be attempting to split Russian-held territory in two in Zaporizhya, but Russia’s defensive positions are well dug-in and heavily mined, making any progress slow and hard-fought.

Russia’s Investigative committee has confirmed the DNA of Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin amongst the dead on board the plane which came down on August 23. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defence is attempting to take over Wagner Group operations in Africa and the Middle East, with Vladimir Putin ordering Wagner fighters to sign an oath of allegiance.
