Ukrainian defenders have liberated Robotyne from Russian occupation
The counteroffensive operation by the Armed Forces in the south of Ukraine is ongoing. The village of Robotyne in the Zaporizhzhia region has been liberated from Russian occupation, officially confirmed Hanna Maliar, the Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, on August 28.
“Our forces are moving further southeast of Robotyne and south of Mala Tokmachka. In military terms, these are the Novodanylivka, Novoprokopivka, and Mala Tokmachka – Ocheretuvate axes,” reported Hanna Maliar during a national telethon.
The Ukrainian troops continue their offensive operation on the Melitopol axis, consolidating their positions and carrying out counter-battery measures. Maliar also added that Russian forces are in a defensive position in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions. However, Russia keep shelling populated areas in the Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, and Mykolaiv regions, particularly with loitering munitions “Lantset”.
At the same time, Ukrainian forces continue a defensive operation, holding back the advance of Russian troops in the east of Ukraine.
According to the Spokesman of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Illia Yevlash, the enemy resorts to assaults and attempts to recapture positions taken by Ukrainian forces on the Bakhmut axis but has failed. Meanwhile, during successful counteroffensive actions, Ukrainian defenders have thrown the enemy back from positions eastward and in the central part of Klishchiivka in the Donetsk region. Overall, the liberated area on the Bakhmut axis amounts to about 44 square kilometers.
