Ukrainian advances at least 20km into Russian-held territory in eastern Kharkiv Oblast on September 7, recapturing approximately 400 square kilometers of ground, the Institute for Study of War writes in its report.

The level of surprise of Russian millbloggers testifies to the level of success of Ukrainian forces.
