200 Days After Invading, Russians Losing Ground Against Ukrainian Offensive

Summary from the AllSides News Team

The war many expected to last a week has reached 200 days, and the Ukrainian resistance to Russia’s invasion continues to stifle the Kremlin and enamor Western nations. The once-discounted Ukrainian military is reporting rapid gains in the north-eastern Kharkiv region, erasing months of Russian advancement in a matter of days. Since the Russians invaded in February, an estimated but unconfirmed 25,000 Russian soldiers have died. Ukrainian officials state nearly 9,000 of their soldiers have died.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised the gains made by Ukrainian forces and issued a warning to all remaining Russian soldiers in the country, stating “the movement of our soldiers in different directions of the front continues. As of now, as part of active actions since the beginning of September, about 2,000 kilometers of our territory have already been liberated. These days, the Russian army is showing its best – showing its back. And, in the end, it is a good choice for them to run away. There is and will be no place for the occupiers in Ukraine.”

As the war continues in Ukraine, Western Europe and the United States continue to provide aid for the resisting nation. Despite high energy costs and prospects of a harsh European winter without Russian gas imports, support for Ukraine remains relatively bipartisan in United States media, with one writer for the New York Post Opinion (Right Bias) stating that a “decisive Ukrainian victory is in the interest of both parties.”
