The Ukrainian military liberated the city of Izyum in the south of the Kharkiv region. The Russian army en masse left almost the entire occupied part of Kharkiv region.
Videos from Izyum are published on social networks, in particular, a video from the cityʼs central square was published by Yuriy Kochevenko, an officer of the 95th brigade, on his Twitter account.
Another military man, Anatoly Shtefan, also published a video with the Ukrainian flag at the destroyed Izyum city council.
Information about the escape of Russians from Izyum appeared on September 10, but at that time the Ukrainian military published videos only from the northern and southern outskirts of the city.
- In the last few days, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been actively advancing in the Kharkiv Region. Ukrainian troops have already liberated 30 settlements, including Kupyansk and Balaklia. In the Kherson region, the armed forces advanced several dozens of kilometers.
- The Ministry of Defense of Russia actually recognized the loss of the towns of Izyum and Balaklia in the Kharkiv region, but called it an "operation to roll back and transfer troops." The purpose of this "rolling back" is to transfer the troops to the Donetsk direction.
