The last major success claimed by Ukraine in its counter-offensive was the recapture of the village of Robotyne in August, in the southern region of Zaporizhia.
Kiev hoped that this reconquest would allow it to break through the Russian lines and liberate the occupied areas, but the Ukrainian army did not succeed, facing the firepower and solid Russian defense lines.
Taking positions deep on the left bank of the Dnieper could allow a larger assault in the south. But for this, Ukraine must succeed in deploying its army in this difficult to access, sandy and marshy area.
At the same time, explosive drone attacks, signatures of the war in Ukraine, have increased in recent days.
During the night from Saturday to Sunday, Kiev and Moscow were targeted by opposing attacks from these small devices, which were however largely intercepted by anti-aircraft defenses and did not cause any casualties, according to the respective authorities.
According to the report given by the Russian Defense Ministry, a drone was destroyed by air defense equipment […] over the territory of the Bogorodsky urban district in the Moscow region.
< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">Ukrainian drone attacks targeting Moscow were particularly frequent in the spring, ahead of and at the start of Kiev's counter-offensive that began in June, but they have been very rare in recent weeks.
