Along the north western axis, Ukrainian forces' attempts to advance from Irpin toward Bucha and Hostomel are ongoing. Russian forces are reported to have withdrawn from mHostomel airport, which has been subject to fighting since the first day of the conflict. Along the eastern axis, Ukraine has re-taken several villages;
- In the east of Ukraine, Ukrainian forces have secured a key route in eastern Kharkiv after heavy fighting. This follows the liberation of Trostyanets, in the vicinity of Sumy, earlier this week.
According to Oleksii Arestovych, an adviser to the president's office, the occupier's troops in the Sumy region are forming barriers to retreat. What it means:
"The enemy is sending a certain number of troops from the Kursk region to the Konotop district, but this is not an attempt to create a strike group. These troops do not pose a threat to Sumy, Chernihiv, Kyiv, and other cities in these three regions. they were not destroyed when they retreated towards the border," Oleksii Arestovych said.
We remind you that on April 2, the Kyiv region was liberated entirely from enemy Russian occupation.
