Quote: "The most intense point for us is the Izium front. There our Armed Forces went on the counterattack.
The enemy is retreating in some areas - this is the result of the character of our Armed Forces."
- Analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) believe that the Russian military has probably decided to withdraw fully from its positions around the city of Kharkiv .
- According to ISW, "this is how Ukraine seems to have won the battle for Kharkiv": Ukrainian forces prevented Russian troops from encircling, let alone seizing Kharkiv.
