Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Hanna Malar spoke about the ongoing counter-offensive of the Ukrainian troops. “It is extremely difficult because Russian troops have heavily mined the fighting areas and are putting up fierce resistance, but despite this, Ukrainian troops are constantly advancing,” she said.

As reported by the Ukrainian Pravda portal, Malar stated that the Ukrainian troops are conducting offensive operations in several directions, but the Russians are conducting similar operations on other sections of the front.

“Right now, we’re doing both a defensive and a counter-offensive, just on different fronts. There is a very serious confrontation going on, she said.

She added that the Russians also intensified attacks using artillery, mortars, drones and aircraft in an attempt to stop the Ukrainian counteroffensive. She stressed that on many sections of the front, including in the south, Ukrainian soldiers have to force through dense minefields, which makes it very difficult to advance, but “progress is steady”.

As reported by Ukraine journalist Oleh Bilecki, the Ukrainian army is successful in two directions – in the Donetsk region and in the Zaporizhia region.

Biłecki also pointed out that the Ukrainians are struggling with very dense land mines, especially in the Zaporizhia region, which slows down the counter-offensive.
