"Ukraine retakes villages between Chernihiv & Kyiv"
The UK Ministry of Defence has published its latest daily intelligence update. Here's what they've said:
Ukrainian forces have retaken the villages of Sloboda and Lukashivka to the south of Chernihiv and are located along with one of the main supply routes between that city and Kyiv.
Ukraine continues to make successful but limited counterattacks to the east and northeast of Kyiv.
Both Chernihiv and Kyiv have faced continued air and missile strikes despite Russian claims of reducing military activity in these areas.
This comes as Nato's general secretary Jens Stoltenberg said Russian forces in Ukraine are regrouping to double down on their attacks in the east of the country.
