Izium direction remains the hottest spot in the region, but the Armed Forces of Ukraine have launched a counter-offensive and succeed there.

" Izium direction remains the hottest spot. Our Armed Forces have launched a counter-offensive, the enemy retreats in some directions. And this is the result of the resolve of our Armed Forces. We will win," Head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Synehubov posted on Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

The official urged citizens not to return immediately to the recently liberated villages because, retreating, the enemy mined absolutely everything.
