His army does not completely control them, but the fighting there is particularly intense.
In the Cherniguiv region (north), a family, coming to visit a relative in the border town of Semenivka, found themselves under enemy fire on Saturday, said Governor Viatcheslav Tchaouss.
A man and his daughter, whose age was not specified, were injured and hospitalized, he added.
Elsewhere, the Ukrainian army said that Moscow's forces were carrying out daily assaults on Avdiivka, where they have increased their pressure in recent months.
They are also trying to enter the coking plant bordering its northern part, which is the largest factory of its type in Ukraine, according to Ukrainian forces.
Kiev soldiers nevertheless managed to repel these attacks, the army said.
For almost two months, the Russians have been trying to seize Avdiïvka, an industrial city near Donetsk.
Russian soldiers are to the east, north and south of the city, now largely in ruins, almost surrounded, but still served by an asphalt road.
Ukrainian military intelligence (GUR) also reported that an act of resistance carried out on Friday in the Ukrainian town of Melitopol, controlled by Moscow forces, caused the deaths of several Russian occupants .
This operation also targeted an enemy tanker, rendering military equipment incapacitated, said the GUR.
AFP has not been able to verify these claims, but Ukraine regularly claims actions of this type in occupied territory.
Melitopol, a southern city conquered shortly after the start of the Russian invasion in February 2022, is important for the logistics of the Russian army.
