Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Sunday evening that his army had recaptured the strategic town of Izium in eastern Ukraine from Russian forces, where Kyiv is waging a counter-offensive that has broken down Russian lines.
In his daily address on the 200th day of the conflict, Zelensky thanked the Ukrainian military who “liberated hundreds of our towns and villages (… ) of which the most recent are Balakliïa, Izium and Koupyansk”.
