Ucrânia diz que tropas passaram primeira linha de defesa russa
September 5, 2023 -
Os generais ucranianos dizem ter quebrado a primeira grande linha de
defesas russas no sul, quando a contraofensiva de Kiev lançada em junho parece agora fazer progressos.
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.
