The Ukrainian Armed Forces have assured that the Russian authorities controlling the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine have ordered men not to leave these areas in view of the evolution of the war conflict.
Kiev has made unprecedented advances in its counteroffensive and even Moscow has recognized the withdrawal of troops, although attributing it to technical reasons and not to the alleged defeats alluded to by the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelenski.
The Ukrainian forces have indicated this Sunday that, after the “success” of the offensive, the “invaders” already glimpse a general mobilization and have forbidden the men to leave the “temporarily occupied territories”. Likewise, in Kharkov and Kherson, controls have been tightened, including a curfew, according to a situation report posted on Facebook.
Zelensky claimed on Saturday that the Ukrainian Army has recaptured in the first ten days of September about 2,000 square kilometers of territory. The Armed Forces have reported operations already “underway” in the localities of Kupiansk and Izium in the Kharkov region.
