Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

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.”
