“Ukraine has reclaimed 50% of the territory Russia seized”, claims US

While Ukraine has reclaimed half of the land that Russia initially took in its invasion, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Kyiv faced a “very hard fight” to reclaim more. 

In an interview on Sunday, he said that “about 50% of what was initially seized” had already been returned.

“The counteroffensive is still in its early stages. It is difficult,” he acknowledged, adding, “It will not unfold over the next week or two. We are still considering several months, I believe. 

Following the commencement of a summer counteroffensive, hopes that Ukraine could soon drive Moscow’s soldiers from its territory are dwindling as Kyiv’s troops struggle to break through deeply fortified Russian positions in the country’s south and east.
