Ukraine says troops in Kharkiv region are pushing back Russian forces

From Global News.

Ukraine says its forces are making progress in repelling Russian forces, claiming it has won back the territory north of Kharkiv.

Video released by the country’s defence ministry claims to show troops planting a boundary marker at its Russian border in the Kharkiv region.

President Volodymr Zelenskyy also thanked the soldiers who have won back the territory north of Ukraine’s second-largest city — a further indication that Russia is being forced back to refocus on the eastern Donbas region.

As Redmond Shannon reports, the Kremlin’s attention is also being diverted westward, as Finland and Sweden solidify plans to join NATO.
