Ukrainian forces have made significant progress in breaching Russia's defensive lines near Zaporizhzhia. The first defensive line proved to be the most formidable, with the Russians dedicating a substantial portion of their resources to it. The Ukrainian military has successfully breached this line after weeks of mine clearance, which had initially trapped their troops.
According to Brig Gen Oleksandr Tarnavskiy, the Ukrainian forces are now moving towards the weaker second defensive line and consolidating their hold on territory gained during recent fighting. Russian troops have been redeployed from other areas to reinforce this front, indicating the pressure Moscow is facing in this region.
