Ukraine Recaptures More Land Days After Russian Annexation

HeadlineOct 05, 2022

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is claiming Ukraine’s military has recaptured areas in the Kherson, Kharkiv, Luhansk and Donetsk region as Ukraine continues to mount a large counteroffensive, including in areas that Russia has claimed to have annexed. This comes as the United States has announced a new $625 million military aid package for Ukraine, including four more HIMARS rocket launchers. Russia’s ambassador to the United States denounced the U.S. military aid, saying Moscow perceives it as an “immediate threat to the strategic interests of our country.”
