The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Monday, “Over the last 24 hours, Ukrainian forces have continued to make significant gains in the Kharkiv region.”

The MoD added that the majority of the Russian Army are “highly likely being forced to prioritise emergency defensive actions” and Putin’s troops have “limited” trust in their commanders which will “deteriorate further.”
The Mayor of Kharkiv, Ihor Terekhov, said the Russian cruise missile strikes were “revenge” for the recent Ukraine victories.
He said, “This is a mean and cynical revenge of the Russian aggressor for the successes of our army at the front, in particular – in the Kharkiv region.
“I ask everyone to keep calm.”
