Ukraine retakes more eastern land from Russia, Zelensky claims – BBC News

Ukrainian forces have seized more territory from Russia as they continue their counter-offensive, President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.

The Ukrainian president has claimed troops have now retaken more than 6,000 sq km (2,317 sq miles) from Russian control in September, in the east and the south.

The BBC cannot verify these figures.

Moscow has described the withdrawal of its troops from the north-eastern Kharkiv region in recent days as a “regrouping”, with the aim of focusing on the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in Ukraine’s east.
