Reznikov: Winter will reduce fighting

10:27 PM: Ukraine predicts fighting will ease in winter. “Winter will slow down any activity for everyone involved on the battlefield,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov told Reuters. “It’s a win-win. You can relax.” With thousands of troops currently training in Britain, his country will come out of this break stronger. “We will use this time with the best possible results for our armed forces,” Resnikov said.

Zelenskyy: More than 40 positions have been restored

10:01 PM: According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian troops have already liberated more than 40 towns as part of the ongoing withdrawal of Russian troops from the Cherson region. “The number of Ukrainian flags returned to their rightful place as part of ongoing defense operations is already ten,” he said in his daily video message on Thursday evening.

At the same time, he warned about the dangers of areas abandoned by the occupying forces. “The first and most basic task is demining,” Zelensky said. The occupiers left behind thousands of bullets and ammunition. “I often hear speculation that it will take decades for Ukraine to clean up Russian mines.” According to his findings, about 170,000 square kilometers of the country are still affected by mines.

Zelensky noted that the current successes of the Ukrainian armed forces were achieved “through months of brutal fighting”. “It is not the enemy who is leaving – it is the Ukrainians who are driving out the occupiers,” Zelensky said. “And we must go everywhere – on the battlefield and in diplomacy – so that our flag – the Ukrainian flag – can be seen everywhere in our country, along our entire internationally recognized border. And the tricolor of the enemy is no more.”

The United States has decided on millions of dollars in new military aid

10 pm: The United States is delivering Avenger mobile air defense systems to Ukraine for the first time as part of $400 million in new military aid. The US Department of Defense announced Thursday that four Avenger systems and associated Stinger missiles have been delivered.

The United States is supplying Kiev with missiles, Hemera rocket launchers, artillery ammunition, grenade launchers and more than 20 million rounds of small arms ammunition for the Hawk air defense system promised to Ukraine by Spain.

A Pentagon spokesman said the additional anti-aircraft capability was paramount in the wake of Russia’s “brutal airstrikes against civilians and critical infrastructure in Ukraine.” The new aid package brings U.S. military aid to Ukraine to more than $18.6 billion since Russia’s war of aggression against the country began in late February.

Defense Ministry: Russian withdrawal will take at least a week

8:55 PM: According to Ukrainian sources, it will take at least a week for the Russian withdrawal from Cherson in southern Ukraine. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Resnikov told Reuters news agency that Moscow’s government had deployed 40,000 troops to the region. According to intelligence, armed forces are still present in the city. “It is not so easy to withdraw these troops from Kherson in a day or two,” Reznikov said. “It will take at least a week.”

The US has announced new military aid to Ukraine

7:28 pm: The US has announced new military aid to Ukraine. According to national security adviser Jake Sullivan, it includes “significant contributions to air defense”. This included missiles for the “Hawk” system. According to Sullivan, there is evidence of Russian troop movements consistent with the withdrawal from Kherson.

According to Sullivan, the US government is not pressuring Ukraine about possible talks with Russia. “We don’t push things, we advise as partners,” the national security adviser said. Sullivan called Russia’s withdrawal from the southern Ukrainian city of Cherson an “important milestone” for Ukrainians. But it remains to be seen how the situation actually develops there. “Of course, this is not the end of the war, because Russia continues to occupy parts of the territory of Ukraine,” he stressed.
