Ukrainian troops in Kharkiv Oblast have reached the Russian border in several places, regional governor Oleg Synehubov said in a Telegram post on Sept. 12.

“The enemy flees in haste, retreating deep into occupied territory – or to Russia,” said Synehubov.

“Russians have abandoned Velykyi Burluk and Dvurichna (near Kupyansk) yesterday. At some places, our troops have reached the international Russian border.”

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi said that Ukrainian forces have liberated over 3,000 square kilometers of land in Kharkiv Oblast, since Sept. 1, and are now within 50 kilometers of the Russian border.

Russian Defense Ministry acknowledged the retreat from Kharkiv Oblast, but alleged it was “regrouping” its forces, aiming to bolster the Donetsk Oblast front. That is a lie.
