572 Days of War

Russia lost more forces, Ukraine liberated more territories

The new week for both sides of the war was difficult. Russian invaders again struck with heavy weapons on Ukrainian cities and towns, not only on the front line. On September 15, at 9 a. m., the Russian army fired guided bombs at the residential buildings of Nova Kahovka. There are wounded and dead. Note that Nova Kahovka is occupied, and the explosion occurred due to the premature release of the bomb. In addition, the invaders during the week attacked Donetsk, Kharkiv, Sumy, Kherson, Dnipro, and Mykolaiv regions with missiles and hit them with UAV Shahed.
