Ukrainian troops continue the counter-offensive in Kherson Oblast, Natalia Humeniuk, the head of the joint coordination press center of the Operational Command Pivden (South), said on Ukrainian national television on June 22.

At the same time, she did not disclose the names of the settlements liberated from the invaders for security reasons.

"We do have some successes, counter-offensive actions that are significantly advancing us in the eastern direction, but we aren't announcing the liberated settlements now, because in conditions of war, it's very important to get over, liberate, consolidate and oust the enemy so that he can’t hit with powerful and very brutal artillery and mortar strikes any settlement that is already under our control," Humeniuk said.
