Ukrainian President Zelensky announces his request to join NATO (Reuters)

Photos on social networks today (Wednesday) showed the Ukrainian army advancing on at least one village in the eastern Luhansk region, after crossing from the neighboring Donetsk region.

One photo shows a Ukrainian unit standing and crouching around a road sign in the village of Kharkivka inside Luhansk.

This is the first time since the beginning of the war at the end of February that the Ukrainian army has advanced in Luhansk.



"The liberation of Luhansk has begun," a regional official said.

"Several settlements have already been liberated from the Russian army," said Serhii Hayday, commander of the military administration in the region, on state television.

"All the soldiers understood that a counterattack was inevitable, they would be defeated."



The Kremlin considers the entire province to be under Russian control, following the annexation over the weekend.

But in recent days, Ukrainian forces advanced into the region from several directions, following the achievements in Kharkiv and Donetsk.

On social networks, Ukrainian soldiers were also seen in the city of Tarni in the Donetsk region, about 20 km from the city of Karmina in Luhansk, where, according to experts, a critical line of defense for the Russians is located.

Russian troops are also reportedly abandoning mines in southern Ukraine in villages, as they retreat to the west bank of the Dnieper River.

Ukrainian forces were able to advance in the south of the country towards the occupied city of Kherson and captured the city of Zolota Belka on the west bank of the river, according to a Russian military blogger and regional officials.



On Sunday, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Ukrainian President Kirill Tymoshenko released a video showing Ukrainian forces announcing that they had taken control of the key town of Liman, which Russia had earlier said its troops had abandoned.

"Dear Ukrainians - today the armed forces of Ukraine. Release and take control of Liman, Donetsk region," said one of the soldiers in the video.



The deputy commander appointed by Russia to command Kherson province said for his part that Ukraine's rapid progress in recent days is happening because the Russian army is "reorganizing".

"The Russian army is conducting maneuvers," Kirill Stramosov told the Russian state channel RIA Novosti.

"They are reorganizing at the front to allow us to strengthen and attack," he said.

He said today that the Ukrainian advance in Kherson has stopped and the Ukrainian army has no ability to occupy Kherson.

Earlier today, Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed "acting administrators" to the four Ukrainian regions he illegally annexed, according to Russian news agency TASS.

The four new leaders will rule until official district administrators are appointed in accordance with Russian law, the agency reported.



These are the same four managers who lead the regions until now during the Russian occupation, even before the annexation.

Denis Pushilin is the director of the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Leonid Pashchanik is the director of the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR).

Yevgeny Belitsky is the acting governor of Zaporizhia and Vladimir Saldo of Kherson.

The four signed treaties of annexation of their provinces on September 30 in a ceremony in the Kremlin.

Putin also signed the annexation law of the provinces, an illegal step according to the international community.

However, it is an important step in Russia's efforts to take over all of Ukraine.



Russia does not fully control the areas it has annexed, and Moscow is losing territory to the Ukrainian army in the south and east with each passing day.

The Kremlin itself does not know exactly what the borders of the territories it annexed are.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov even said on Monday that "we will continue to consult with the populations in these territories", regarding the borders.



A Ukrainian official said that in the Zaporizhia region, Russia is trying to establish a "political border" at the Vasilivka checkpoint, which separates Russian-controlled territory from the rest of Ukraine, including the capital of Zaporizhia.
