Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

UPDATE: Ukrainian troops are reported to have taken all or parts of the key cities of Izyum and Kup'yans'k, cutting Russian supply lines to the Donbas.



UPDATE: Ukrainian advances continue:


As its southern counteroffensive toward the key city of Kherson continues to gain ground, Ukraine has launched a second counteroffensive in the north near Ukraine's second largest city, Kharhiv.  Ukrainian troops and tanks smashed through Russian lines east of Kharhiv that had been weakened to sent reinforcements to the south.  Analysts say a fast moving Ukrainian advance is poised to threaten either or both Izyum, which has been the Russian staging post for its campaigns in the Donbas, and Kup'yans'k, a choke point of Russia's rail and road supply lines for its military operations in the Donbas.

Meanwhile in the south, Ukrainian forces are advancing in three sectors although a Russian counterattack is holding them at bay in a fourth on the main M14 highway to Kherson.  Ukrainians are making good progress in advancing along another road to Kherson that runs along the Dniprovsk'a Gulf.  30,000 Russian troops west of the Dnipro River are threatened with being cut off and surrounded after Ukrainian missiles strikes destroyed all three bridges over the Dnipro which had been both their supply line and their line of retreat.

Glad all those reports are so positive, but an Ukrainian solider paints a different picture.

"Ukrainian soldiers detailed in comments to The Washington Post the steep toll that Ukraine was facing in its southern Kherson counteroffensive, an operation that the US reportedly helped Ukraine prepare.
Since launching the offensive at the end of August, Ukrainian officials haven’t offered much detail about the operation, and reporters are not allowed on the frontlines. But the Ukrainian soldiers, who spoke with the Post in a hospital, painted a grim picture of what the battle has been like for the Ukrainian side.
“We lost five people for every one they did,” said Ihor, a 30-year-old platoon commander who injured his back when the tank he was riding in crashed into a ditch.
Oleksandr said the Russian artillery fire was relentless. "They were just hitting us all the time," he said. "If we fire three mortars, they fire 20 in return."
The Ukrainian soldiers said they had to carefully ration their use of munitions but even when they did fire, they had trouble hitting targets. "When you give the coordinates, it’s supposed to be accurate, but it’s not," he said, noting that his equipment dated back to 1989.
Oleksandr had never traveled to Kherson before the war, but he said the goal of expelling Russian invaders was worth sacrificing a limb. "It’s our country," he said."
