“In the last three days, Ukrainian forces have secured bridgeheads on the east bank of the Oskil River in Kharkiv Oblast. Russia has attempted to integrate the Oskil into a consolidated defensive line following its forces’ withdrawals earlier in the month.”

It should be noted that the fighting continues in the southern Donetsk region as Ukrainian troops storm the city of Lyman, east of the Siverskyi Donets River, which Russia captured in May.

“The battlefield situation remains complex, but Ukraine is now putting pressure on territory Russia considers essential to its war aims.”

Earlier it became known that as of September 23, the total combat losses among Russia’s army personnel amounted to about 56,060 people.
