Ukraine pushes Russian troops '3-8 kms' back from Dnipro river: Ukrainian army

Kyiv, The Gulf Observer: The Ukrainian army has said that it pushed Russian forces back “three to eight kilometres” from the banks of the Dnipro River, the first measurable advance by Kyiv’s forces months into a disappointing counteroffensive.

“Preliminary figures vary from three to eight kilometres, depending on the specifics, geography and landscape design of the left bank,” army spokeswoman Natalia Gumenyuk told Ukrainian television without specifying whether the Ukrainian military had complete control of the area or if the Russians had retreated.
