In his daily evening address on Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky provided updates on the situation in Kharkiv after a discussion with Ukraine's Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi.

Zelensky described what he termed "the Russian failure" in Kharkiv as a major achievement.

Zelensky emphasized that Ukrainian forces are effectively repelling Russian units, destroying them as they attempt to penetrate and terrorize the Kharkiv region.

He assured the public that the front line is not only secure but will also be further strengthened.

Airstrike on Russian Soil

In a notable escalation, Ukraine has carried out its first airstrike against a target on Russian soil.

According to a Ukrainian military source who spoke to Sky News, the strike targeted a site in the Belgorod region, near the border with northeastern Ukraine.

Details about the type of ammunition used or whether Western weapons were involved remain unclear.

This development follows statements from the US and France affirming that Ukrainian armed forces have the right to use their weapons to target military sites inside Russia.
