Ukraine steps up pressure on Russian troops northeast of Kyiv. Along that axis, enemy forces face significant challenges. Namely – with supplies and morale.
About it reported in British intelligence, describing the situation regarding the Russian invasion as of 23 March.
British intelligence emphasized that our Armed Forces were successfully counterattacking Russian positions in cities around the capital and probably regained Makarov and Moshchun.
“There is a real possibility that Ukrainian forces can now cordon off Russian units in Bucha and Irpin,” the statement said.
On the same day, the Buchansk city council reported that the Ukrainian defenders were able to encircle Irpin, Bucha and Gostomel. Unfortunately, many neighboring villages are still under occupation.
“It is likely that successful counterattacks by Ukraine will damage the ability of Russian troops to reorganize and resume the offensive against Kyiv,” according to London.
Earlier, as UNIAN wrote, the success of the Ukrainian army was confirmed by the US defense department. They stated that Ukrainian Armed Forces pushed the invaders back to the front line east of Kyiv. Now they are located about 55 kilometers from the center of the capital.
