Latest news today on the war between Russia and Ukraine
MADRID, November 14 (.) –
The Ukrainian authorities have assured that they have “liberated” 179 towns in the south of the country in recent days, after the recent withdrawal of Russian troops from the territories.
“Since the beginning of the week, our units on the right bank of the Dnieper (river) have vacated 179 locations covering more than 4,500 square kilometers,” Vladislav Nazarov, spokesman for the southern command, reported in statements collected by Unian.
Nazarov explained that the enemy “does not stop bombarding the positions of the Armed Forces units and the adjacent communities.”
“The occupiers continue to attack critical infrastructure, civilian objects and the territories of the rear area,” the spokesman detailed.
Faced with the success of Ukrainian counteroffensives, the Russians withdrew last week from the capital Kherson and other places on the west bank of the Dnipro.
International observers describe this fact, according to the dpa agency, as one of the biggest defeats of the Russian Army in the war that has lasted more than eight and a half months.
