Ukraine says its forces have reclaimed a dozen towns and villages in the southern Kherson region after Russian forces announced they were pulling back troops from the strategic territory.

Ukrainian general Valeriy Zaluzhny says on social media that in the last day Ukraine’s forces recaptured six settlements after fighting near Petropavlivka-Novoraisk and another six in the Pervomaiske-Kherson direction, capturing more than 200 square kilometers (75 square miles) from Russian forces.
