Ukraine quickly seized ground, pushing out Russians from the Kharkiv region


Ukraine is quickly seizing ground as its counteroffensive gains momentum and shows no sign of slowing down. On the 200th day of the war, Ukraine announced its troops reclaimed more than 1,100 square miles from the Russians, liberating more settlements in the east. Russia’s grip in the Kharkiv region slowly diminished, forcing the Russians to retreat. The 6th and last working reactor at Europe’s largest nuclear plant has been shut down by Ukrainian energy officials after crews at the plant managed to restore an external line. Experts say if the powerline is struck again by artillery, the plant will be forced to run on backup generators that run on diesel though there’s only a 10-day supply of the fuel.
