Ukrainian forces continue to consolidate recent territorial gains in the Kharkiv region and are likely to launch further attacks with the aim of advancing further into the east of the country. This was stated by the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) in its regular analysis of the war situation in Ukraine.

According to ISW, Ukrainian forces have overrun the Oskil River near the town of Borova and are threatening Russian positions on the left bank. In doing this, the institute notes information from pro-Russian war correspondents and bloggers that the aforementioned river in the eastern part of Kharkiv was supposed to form a new front.

The US think tank estimates “It is unlikely that Russian forces will be strong enough to prevent further Ukrainian advances along the entire Oskil River, as reinforcements do not appear to be arriving.”

“It is possible that Ukrainian forces could use this weakness to resume a counterattack across the Oskil River if they decided to do so,” he adds.

It also appears that the Ukrainian army is launching counterattacks in the northern part of the Donetsk region and is trying to take advantage of the control of the city of Svyatohersk to advance east towards Lyman. But according to Russian sources, this attack was stopped.

The fighting is also taking place near the village of Bilhorivka in the Luhansk region, through which the Ukrainians want to break through the Severodonetsk and Lysychansk regions.

ISW previously reported that Kyiv had reached a turning point in the war with a successful offensive in the Kharkiv region.

US President Joe Biden said Wednesday evening that this claim is difficult to confirm. “Obviously, the Ukrainians have made great progress. However, I think that will continue for a long time,” he added, adding that the United States would likely announce another package of military aid to Ukraine in the “coming days.”
