Ucrania afirma que sus tropas han traspasado la línea defensiva rusa

September 5, 2023 - Los generales ucranianos afirman que han traspasado la primera de las líneas principales de defensa de Rusia en el sur, cuando la contraofensiva lanzada en junio por Kiev parece estar progresando.

The focus of Ukraine’s counter-offensive effort in recent weeks has been an expanding bridgehead around the tiny village of Robotyne, some 56km south-east of the city of Zaporizhya.

Ukrainian forces raised the country’s blue and yellow flag over the village more than a week ago, and are now trying to widen the gap to allow larger infantry and armoured units to pass through without coming under Russian fire.

If that can be achieved, there is a chance Ukraine’s offensive can gain momentum as it approaches second and third defensive lines, which may not be quite as robust as the first, the BBC said.
