Ukraine states that snowballing to be offensive and accuses Russia of blackouts

September 13, 2022: -Ukrainian forces kept moving north in the Kharkiv region and going to its south and east. Ukraine’s army chief said a day after their rapid increase forced Russia to abandon its main bastion in the region.

Ukrainian officials blamed retreating Russian forces for establishing retaliatory attacks on civilian infrastructure, that includes a thermal power station in Kharkiv, that the authorities in Kyiv said caused widespread blackouts.

“No military facilities, the goal is to keep people away from light & heat,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy tweeted of the attacks. Moscow denies its forces deliberately target civilians.

Zelenskyy has described Ukraine’s offensive as a potential breakthrough in the six-month-old war and added that the winter could see more territorial gains if Kyiv gets more powerful weapons.

In the disappointing defeat for Moscow’s forces since they were repelled from the outskirts of the capital Kyiv, thousands of Russian soldiers were behind ammunition and equipment as they fled the city of Izium, which they had used as a logistics hub.

Ukraine’s head commander, General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, said the armed forces had regained control of more than 3,000 square km, which begins this month.

Moscow’s almost total silence on the defeat or any explanation for what had happened in northeastern Ukraine provoked considerable anger among a few pro-war commentators and Russian nationalists on social media. Some called on Sunday for President Vladimir Putin to make immediate changes to ensure ultimate victory in the war.
