Putin REVERSAL – Ukraine Pulls Giant Upset!
(ConservativeInsider.org) – When Russian troops invaded Ukraine in February, no one could predict how much land they would take and if they would be able to hold onto it. Now, over seven months later, Ukraine has launched a counteroffensive and is successfully taking back some of its territories. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy shared more about these recent victories in a speech.
On Thursday, September 8, Zelenskyy noted that Ukrainian forces have freed over 1,000 square kilometers, over 621 square miles, of land that Russian soldiers took in recent months. He celebrated the hard work of his troops, highlighting their bravery and determination to reclaim their land.
On Saturday, September 10, Zelenskyy shared footage of his troops raising the Ukrainian flag in Chkalovske, one of the many settlements back under their control. Troops have also liberated much of the Kharkiv region and forced Russian troops to retreat quickly, leaving behind many weapons that now rest in the hands of Ukrainians.
However, Russia did push back by striking energy stations in Ukraine, reportedly leaving all of the disputed Kharkiv and Donetsk regions without power over the weekend. While many of the towns that Ukraine has retaken are in ruins from Russian shelling and occupation, it’s determined to rebuild its homeland to its previous glory.
There’s still plenty of land for Ukraine to take back if it wants to return its borders to its pre-war state, but its progress so far has clearly been a major blow to Russia and President Vladimir Putin.
