Ukraine celebrates success in counterattack; Russia retaliates

The Russian army lost territory on all fronts in the 28th week of the war, with counterattacks extending from the southern Kherson region to the eastern and northern fronts of the country, demonstrating the continued ability to seize the initiative of Ukraine.

The Northern Ukrainian Army launched a new counteroffensive on 6 September in the northern Kharkov region.

Despite radio silence from the country’s political and military leadership in Kyiv, Ukrainian-Russian military bloggers reported that Verbyevka, 70 km (44 mi) southeast of the city of Kharkiv, which Ukraine recaptured in early May, and heavy fighting was reported in Barakuria.

The Ukrainian military appears to have recaptured Verbivka and posted a geolocated video showing the bodies of Russian soldiers.

Ryber was one of several Russian military bloggers to report the ongoing fighting around Barraculia on the night of 6 September, but by early 7 September the city was completely surrounded.

“[Balaklia] is within operational cordon and within range of Ukrainian artillery. All entrances will be blocked by [enemy] fire,” he wrote.

The Russian reporter also said that Moscow troops blew up bridges on the Balaklika and Kranya-Balaklika rivers to prevent Ukrainians from advancing.

According to unconfirmed reports, the attack caused the collapse of the Russian front, leaving it vulnerable to redeploying troops to the south last month.

The offensive appears to have resulted in a massacre for the Russian military.

Ukraine reported 460 enemy casualties in a single day.

The attack came a day after Ukrainian forces destroyed a Russian ammunition depot in Balakria, a repeat of the corrosive tactics used in the south.

Eastern Ukrainian forces maintained pressure in the Donetsk area, recapturing Ozern on 4 September and establishing a foothold on the northern bank of the occupied Siversky Donetsk River.

Ukraine’s News24 and Militaryland posted footage showing soldiers crossing the Sibirsky Donets River after completing a mission, confirming their success with geo-located photographs.

Ukrainian forces maintained their eastern offensive on 6 September. Denis Pushirin, the self-proclaimed head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, said Russian forces were guarding Kodema in Donetsk.

Ukrainian leaders indirectly confirm achievements in the east and south on 5 September, praising battlefield successes, mentioning two liberated settlements in Kherson and one in Donetsk.

Geolocated footage confirmed that Ukrainian forces also captured Oline and Novovosnesenke.

Zelensky predicted that Crimea south of Kherson, which Russia annexed in 2014, would also be annexed.

“I believe that Ukraine’s flag and free life will return to Crimea again,” he said in his nightly video address, reiterating Ukraine’s goal of returning to its pre-2014 borders. “It is clear to everyone that the occupiers have already begun to flee Crimea. This is the right choice for all of them.”

Despite the loss of equipment and ammunition in the weeks of precision strikes preceding the counter-offensive, Russian forces are retaliated.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said his army shot down 190 Ukrainian drones and intercepted 226 HIMAR rockets. If true, it suggests that Russia still has the ability to relentlessly counterattack two of Ukraine’s most effective weapons.

A Ukrainian Special Forces official told Al Jazeera that taking the city of Kherson would take “at least several months” and would require more Western military assistance.

US General Mark Hartling described Ukraine’s strategy to attack the western Kherson region as a “great step”. Because there Russian forces had their backs to the Dnieper, they were able to cut off their lines of communication.

“The poor [Russian] leadership drove many [battalion tactical groups] to [the Dnieper] because Putin wanted the city of Kherson, Mykolaiv and eventually Odessa. So there are only two bridges across [the Dnieper], destroy those bridges . ..and the logistics and the stranded army.
