Ukraine Says It Liberated 4 Villages as Counteroffensive Gets Underway

HeadlineJun 12, 2023

Ukraine says it recaptured four villages in the eastern Donetsk region after President Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed on Saturday Ukraine’s long-awaited counteroffensive has begun.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “It is important that Russia always feels it. They do not have much time left, in my opinion. Counteroffensive and defensive actions are taking place in Ukraine. At what stage, I will not say in detail.”

Zelensky also said the International Criminal Court has opened an investigation into last week’s Kakhovka dam breach, which triggered an environmental disaster and killed at least 14 people.
