The Ukrainian military has been making significant gains in the Kherson region along the banks of the Inhulets and Dnieper rivers, while continuing to advance in Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, the US-based Institute for the Study of War said. ISW point out that the Ukrainian success is also confirmed by Russian sources.

In a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, US President Biden said that the White House is sending a new military aid package worth 625 million USD, which includes HIMARS missile systems, the White House reported.

Russian ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, commented on Telegram that the new package of American military aid to Kyiv "strengthens the status of the United States as a participant in the conflict". According to him, this poses a threat to Moscow's interests and increases the danger of a direct military confrontation between Russia and the Western countries, Reuters reported.
