Russia has reportedly withdrawn units from Kharkiv region of Ukraine to reorganise and replenish its forces following heavy losses, the British defence ministry said.

“Despite Russia’s success in encircling Kharkiv in the initial stages of the conflict, it has reportedly withdrawn units from the region to reorganise and replenish its forces following heavy losses”, the ministry said in a regular Twitter bulletin on Thursday, reports TRT World.

“Ukrainian forces are keeping up a counterattack to the north of the second largest city of Kharkiv and recapturing several towns and villages toward the Russian border”, Britain said.

“The withdrawal of Russian forces from the Kharkiv Oblast is a tacit recognition of Russia’s inability to capture key Ukrainian cities where they expected limited resistance from the population”, it added.
