Denis Yaroslavsky, commander of a special Ukrainian reconnaissance unit, expressed extreme anger at what is happening in the city of Kharkiv.

The Ukrainian commander had participated in a Russian surprise attack targeting the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv in the fall of 2022, which ended with Ukrainian forces successfully repelling the first Russian invasion along the border road.

However, he and his soldiers are currently facing the possibility of carrying out the same mission again, after Russian forces, in recent days, made limited but important gains along the border in the Kharkiv region.

The advance of the Russian forces was only a few miles, but they were able to control about 100 kilometers of Ukrainian territory, compared to what was witnessed in the more defended eastern region of Ukraine, which took Russia months to achieve the same results.
