Russia loses control of major Northeast cities as Ukrainian troops advance

The rapid fall of Izium in Kharkiv province was Moscow’s worst defeat since the withdrawal of its troops from the capital Kyiv in March.

Moscow on Saturday abandoned its main stronghold in northeastern Ukraine, in a sudden collapse of one of the war’s key front lines after a swift advance by Ukrainian forces.

The rapid fall of Izium in Kharkiv province was Moscow’s worst defeat since the withdrawal of its troops from the capital Kyiv in March. This could prove to be a turning point in the 6-month-old war, in which thousands of Russian soldiers lost ammunition and equipment as they fled.

The Russian army used Izium as a logistics base for one of its main operations – a month-long attack from the north on the Donbass region adjacent to Donetsk and Luhansk.

The state-run TASS news agency quoted Russia’s defense ministry as saying it had ordered troops to leave the surrounding area and strengthen operations elsewhere in neighboring Donetsk.

TASS reported that the head of Russia’s administration in Kharkiv asked residents to evacuate the province and flee to Russia to “save lives”. Eyewitnesses described a traffic jam of cars in which people were leaving Russian-held territory.

The Russian withdrawal was initiated by Ukrainian leaders.

“The Russian military is doing its best these days – to show its back,” President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video address on Saturday evening.

He said Ukraine’s armed forces had liberated some 2,000 square kilometers (770 sq mi) of territory since retaliation against Russia earlier this month.

Ukrainian officials declined to confirm that they had recaptured Izium, but Zelensky’s chief of staff Andrey Yermak posted a photo of soldiers on its outskirts and tweeted an emoji of grapes. The name of the city means “raisins.”

“The Russian army is claiming the title of the fastest army in the world…keep running!” Yermak later wrote on Twitter.

The announcement of the Russian withdrawal came hours after Ukrainian troops moved north to capture the city of Kupiansk, the only railway hub that supplies Russia’s entire front line in northeastern Ukraine. Ukrainian officials posted photos of their soldiers early Saturday, waving the country’s blue-and-yellow flag in front of Kupiansk’s city hall.

It abruptly cut thousands of Russian soldiers from supplies along a front that has seen some of the war’s most intense fighting.

With their remaining positions on the Eastern Front showing signs of trouble elsewhere for Russia, pro-Russian officials acknowledged difficulties elsewhere.

Zelensky said that the armed forces of Ukraine are advancing in various areas on the front.

A few days earlier, Kyiv’s forces burst through the front line and have since recaptured dozens of towns and villages in a swift mechanized attack, advancing dozens of kilometers (miles) a day.

TASS quoted the Ministry of Defense of Russia as saying, “In order to achieve the stated goals of the Special Military Operation for the liberation of Donbass, the regrouping of Russian troops located in the districts of Balaklia and Izyum is aimed at increasing efforts in the Donetsk direction.” It was decided to do so.” as saying.

The Russian army had left Balaklia a few days earlier.

Ukraine’s deputy defense minister, Hannah Malayar, issued a warning note urging people not to report ahead of time that towns were “taken” just because Ukrainian troops entered, as is in Balaklia.

“A few days ago it was reported that soldiers had entered the city. Today we have finally established control over the city, carried out all necessary activities, and raised the flag,” he said.

In Harakov, one of dozens of villages recaptured by the Ukrainian advance, Reuters saw burned vehicles bearing the “Z” symbol of Russia’s invasion. Ammunition boxes were strewn with rubbish at the places the Russians had left in apparent haste.

“Hello everyone, we are from Russia,” was spray-painted on one wall. Three bodies were lying in a white body bag in a yard.

The regional police chief, Volodymyr Tymoshenko, said Ukrainian police moved the previous day, and checked the identities of local residents, who had been living under Russian occupation since the second day of the invasion.

“The first task is to provide them with the necessary assistance. The next task is to document the crimes committed by the Russian invaders on the areas they temporarily occupied,” he said.
