In a fresh video broadcast, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky acknowledged that Ukrainian soldiers are regaining territory in the Kyiv region, as well as the news that they had reconquered Irpin, which had previously been declared by its mayor a few hours before.

“We got some wonderful news today. Our troops march in the Kyiv area, reclaiming control of Ukrainian land. Irpin has been released. “Way to go,” he said.

However, the Ukrainian president cautioned that Russian forces are “working to reconstruct” the units damaged during the confrontations, and that “it is too early to talk about security in this area of our territory.”

On Monday, the mayor of Irpin, near Kyiv, said that Ukrainian forces had retaken complete control of the city, which had been one of the key flashpoints in the capital’s struggle with Russian soldiers.

In a video posted on Telegram, Mayor Oleksandr Markushyn remarked, “We have excellent news today: Irpin has been released.” “We know there will be more attacks on our town, and we will valiantly defend it.”

“Our Irpin has been liberated from Moscow’s tyranny!” Ukraine is to be praised! All honor to her defenders! Markushin has said, “Eternal remembrance to the fallen warriors!”

In the video, Mayor Markushin has reported that the city continues to be “dangerous”: “We are reinforcing our new borders and we will continue to advance and liberate Bucha, Gostomel, Vorzel. We understand that our city will be attacked and we will defend it bravely. Irpin is Ukraine ”, Markushin emphasized.

Although the advance of the Russian army on the ground appears to be stalling, the invading air force is increasing its bombing, particularly in the Kiev region, in Chernihiv (north) and around the breakaway regions of Donbas .

The bombings are also becoming more destructive as the Russian military’s stockpiles of precision missiles dwindle, according to the Pentagon, which estimates, however, that Russian forces still have more than 50% of their missile stockpiles.

Russia is also mobilizing Russian forces from breakaway territories in Georgia to send them to Ukraine , according to the US top official.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces launched a counteroffensive in the city of Kherson in the south of the country, the only major urban center completely conquered by Russian forces, which is now in “dispute,” a senior official from the Department said on Friday. of Defense of the United States.
