Details: Thus, the Secretary of the National Security Council rejected the statements of Russian officials that the counteroffensive had already begun.
According to him, Russian officials took local Ukrainian successes in some areas of the front as the start of a larger operation.
Quote: "All of this is not true. Our military will decide when all this starts. When we start a counteroffensive, everyone will know about it, everyone will see it."
Reminder: Hanna Maliar, Ukraine’s Deputy Defence Minister, has reiterated that Ukrainian defence forces’ counteroffensive will not be announced publicly.
