Ukraine liberates over 14 km² over the past week – General Staff
Over the past week, Ukrainian forces have liberated over 14 square kilometers, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Staff says the troops advanced more than one kilometer in the country’s south, reclaiming more than 10 square kilometers, and liberated four km² in the east near Bakhmut City, Donetsk Oblast.

The Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to conduct offensive operations at the Melitopol, Berdiansk, and Bakhmut directions.

According to the General Staff, Ukrainian Armed Forces units advanced more than one kilometer in the southern Melitopol and Berdiansk directions, bringing the total advancement to 8.6 kilometers since the beginning of the offensive on these axes in early June.

Southern Ukraine saw the liberation of more than ten square kilometers over the past week, with the total reclaimed area being 169 km² in the course of the counter-offensive, the Staff says. Mine clearance activities are ongoing in these areas.

In the east, Ukrainian soldiers reclaimed four km² in the Bakhmut sector.

“In total, the liberated area in the Bakhmut sector amounts to 24 square kilometers of Ukrainian land,”  the General Staff wrote.
