Ukraine – Russia. The most important events of the last hours – September 11, 2022

The Russian invasion of Ukraine lasts for 200 days. Ukraine continues its offensive in the north-eastern part of the country. The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, informed that about 2,000 kilometers of the country had been liberated since the beginning of September. On Saturday, there was information about the entry of Ukrainian forces into Izium. Liberation of the city would be Russia’s biggest failure since its troops were pushed out of Kiev, according to Reuters. Here are the highlights of the last hours.

> President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky informed in a video on Facebook published on Saturday night that soldiers are continuing their activities on various fronts. – Already about 2,000 kilometers of our territory has been liberated as part of active measures since the beginning of September – he said.

> Zelenskiy also said that Ukrainian territorial defense forces liberated two more towns – Vasylenkovka and Artemivka in the Kharkiv region in the east of the country. – Step by step, our soldiers are liberating the Ukrainian land – he stressed.

> Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba on the same day he said in Kiev that Ukrainian forces had shown that they were able to defeat the Russian army with the weapons given to them. – And that is why I repeat: the more weapons we receive, the sooner we will win and the sooner this war will end – said the head of Ukrainian diplomacy.

> The prosecutor’s office of the Kharkiv region informed that Russian troops fired on Kharkiv on Saturday evening. One resident was killed in the attack and three people were injured. According to the announcement, one of the missiles hit the premises of the company, killing a 43-year-old security guard. Several residential buildings were damaged in the attack.

> Information about the liberation of the city of Izium by Ukrainian forces has appeared. So far, there is no official confirmation of these reports from the general staff of the Armed Forces Ukraine. “Our Armed Forces of Ukraine are in Izium. It cannot be said that the military operation to liberate Izium is completed, but our military is working” – said the deputy mayor of this city in eastern Ukraine, Volodymyr Macokin, quoted by the NV portal.

This would be Moscow’s biggest defeat since its troops were pushed out of Kiev in March, according to Reuters. As noted, Russian forces used Izium as a logistic base for one of the main campaigns – an attack from the north on a neighboring region Donbas and cities such as Donetsk and Luhansk.

> On Saturday, Ukrainian forces announced their entry into Kupiansk in the Kharkiv region. Earlier this week, Ukrainian forces liberated the 27,000-strong city of Balakliya. A Pole – Szymon, a soldier of the International Defense Legion of Ukraine, is taking part in the Ukrainian offensive in the Kharkiv region. – None of us expected such an easy victory. The Russians put up practically no resistance. They are withdrawing – where I am – all the way. All the goals of the offensive that were set for us at the beginning have already been achieved – he said in an interview with TVN24.

These words seem to be confirmed by the entry posted on Saturday evening by Andriy Yermak, head of the office of the president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. “The Russian army is rushing to become the fastest army in the world. He wants to achieve this ‘honorable’ title very quickly. Keep going!” – he wrote on Twitter.

> Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said during his speech at the annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy YES, an association that works for his country’s integration with the EU, that we have a difficult 90 days of winter ahead of us, which will determine the future of Ukraine and the European Union. – Although this winter will be difficult for many societies, each of them should know that after these 90 days a period of real protection begins, protection for decades from all the threats that are so painfully felt today – Zelenskiy said. – Once we get through it all, our neighbor (Russia – Ed.) will never be able to do anything with us anymore – he added. In his opinion, “Russia has entered the path of its historic defeat and the clarity of this path, the outline of its defeat, will become obvious after these 90 days – if we are all honest and if we all endure.”
