Presidential spokesman Oleksii Arestovich has reported these advances and that “tough battles lie ahead” in the south and east of the country, according to Ukrainian public television.

“Let’s have no illusions. There is still intense fighting in the south, for Mariupol, for eastern Ukraine,” the spokesman explained. In addition, Arestovich has highlighted that the Ukrainian troops are being able to maintain the front line in the east of the country.

Ukrainian forces have taken control of towns such as Bucha or Brovari and Russian forces have also withdrawn from Gostomel Antonov airport, where they have remained entrenched for several weeks, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry has reported.
