Who is winning the war in Ukraine: the incredible counteroffensive in Kharkiv

The counteroffensive against the Russian invader is bearing fruit and the Ukrainians are regaining ground. US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin acknowledged the successes of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s resistance, reiterating that today, more than ever, it is necessary to maintain long-term assistance with the training of Ukrainian soldiers, the support of US intelligence and sending weapons. To give the winning shoulder, the United States approved another $675 million package of war material: cannons, ammunition, anti-radar missiles, anti-mine systems, armored Humvee vehicles, night vision goggles, equipment. In Ukraine, there are three open fronts: that of northern Kharkiv where, as the map on the Twitter channel @TpyxaNews also shows, the soldiers managed to wedge in for a few tens of kilometers, recovering substantial portions of land and liberating Balakliya , a locality that represents a crucial “centre”; east of Bakhmut and south of Kherson.

Here the successes of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians on the front line are minor, but many witnesses, including many pro-Russians, argue that the situation is critical. Between 7 and 8 September, the Armed Forces of Ukraine shot down a helicopter and two Russian Su-25 Frogfoot attack planes. This was reported by the Airborne Assault Force Command. On the Russian front, there is massive use of Wagner militia and mercenaries due to a shortage of personnel in the regular army, limited logistical corridors, but good reserves of weapons. Three days of counterattack that are very worrying and irritating for President Vladimir Putin, who urgently convened a meeting with members of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
