Ukraine has reoccupied towns and defensive positions up to 20 miles east of Kyiv, helped by Russian forces falling back on overextended supply lines, according to the Ministry of Defence.

British intelligence assesses that Ukrainian forces are “likely” to continue to attempt to push Russian forces back along the northwestern route from the capital towards Hostomel airfield, which has experienced fierce fighting since the early days of the invasion. The MoD update was referring to territory on the M01 international highway, including Lukianivka and the village of Semypolky.

In the south, the ministry said that Russian forces were still trying to circumvent the strategic city of Mykolaiv as they look to drive towards the Black Sea port of Odesa “with their progress being slowed by Ukraine”

This was disclosed by Britain’s Ministry of Defence on Friday in its latest intelligence update, CNN reports.

“Ukrainian counter-attacks, and Russian forces falling back on overextended supply lines, has allowed Ukraine to re-occupy towns and defensive positions up to 35 kilometres (21 miles) east of Kyiv,” the ministry said.

“Ukrainian forces are likely to continue to attempt to push Russian Forces back along the north-western axis from Kyiv towards Hostomel Airfield,” it added.

“Russian forces are still attempting to circumvent Mykolaiv as they look to drive west towards Odesa with their progress being slowed by logistic issues and Ukrainian resistance.”

The war between Ukraine and Russia started in February and several casualties have already been recorded.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine over disagreements on some political issues.
