The “counteroffensive” advertised by Kyiv in the south failed on the first day, writes the Serbian publication Politika.
“The reports from Kyiv spoke of an alleged breakthrough of Russian lines in several directions, and allegedly several villages were liberated already in the first hours of the offensive,” the newspaper writes.
However, the very next day, Politika notes, Ukrainian propaganda died down, news about the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson and Nikolaev regions stopped coming from Kyiv.
Apparently, Russian sources who said that the entire Ukrainian “counteroffensive” was beaten off in one day were right, summed up Serbian journalists.
Recall, according to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, when trying to attack in the south, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost 1,700 soldiers and several hundred pieces of military equipment.
