Ukraine’s counteroffensive ‘major turning point’ ambassador claims

The success of Ukraine’s counteroffensive in Kharkiv marks a “major turning point” in their struggle against Russia, it has been claimed.

Ukraine’s Ambassador to the US Oksana Markarova has said these victories give Ukraine momentum in their fight to liberate their homeland.

“It’s the 202nd day of the war, and this counteroffensive, which already allowed us to free more than 2,500 square miles of Ukrainian territory, and more importantly, almost 300 villages and different settlements, and our people there, is one of the major turning points,” Markova told CNN.

“The fight that Russians are putting up, of course when they’re not running, is pretty big. And especially they’re doing very cowardice attacks on our infrastructure, and just still shooting at the civilian buildings, places, everywhere. But it’s a big momentum when we are showing that we can win.”
