Kyiv – Russia continues to suffer heavy casualties in the war against Ukraine.
Not only soldiers and war material are lost, the Russian military also has to give up areas.
This is impressively demonstrated by the defeat in the southern Ukrainian city of Cherson, which was only recently liberated by the Ukrainian armed forces.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj sees the military success as a turning point in the Ukraine war.
"It can be compared to D-Day - the Normandy landings," said the head of state at the G20 summit on the Indonesian island of Bali.
He was connected via video.
The liberation of Kherson is "not yet the finale in the fight against evil, but it already determines the entire further course of events," Zelenskyy added.
