Ukraine Claims It Has Recaptured 3,000 Square Miles of Territory from Russia

HeadlineSep 14, 2022

Ukraine is claiming it has recaptured over 3,000 square miles of territory from Russia during a counteroffensive largely targeting the Kharkiv region. Earlier today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the city of Izium, which Ukrainian forces retook over the weekend. Despite Ukraine’s advances, Russia still occupies about one-fifth of Ukraine’s territory. On Tuesday, President Biden declined to say if he saw Ukraine’s latest offensive as a turning point in the war.

President Joe Biden: “It’s clear the Ukrainians have made significant progress, but I think it’s going to be a long haul.”
