In recent days, Ukrainian troops have made "noticeable progress" in the offensive against Russian troops in southern Ukraine.

This was stated by the strategic communications coordinator of the US National Security Council, John Kirby, AFP reports.

According to him, over the past 72 hours, the United States has observed a noticeable advance of Ukrainian armed forces south of Zaporizhzhia.

He also emphasized that it is "unhelpful" to criticize partners for the speed of the offensive.

In recent days, Western analysts have noted that Ukrainian troops broke through the Russian defense line for several kilometers between Robotyn and Verbov in the Zaporizhzhia region.

  • On August 23, fighters of the 47th separate mechanized brigade raised the flag of Ukraine in the village of Robotyne, Zaporizhzhia region. Already on August 28, the Ministry of Defense confirmed the release of Robotyny and reported that the Defense Forces are advancing towards Novoprokopivka and Ocheretuvaty Pologiv district.
