Ukrainian troops defending Kharkiv reach state border with Russia – governor

KYIV (Reuters) – Ukrainian troops defending the city of Kharkiv have reached the state border with Russia, the regional governor said on Monday.

Reuters could not independently verify the comments made by Kharkiv region governor Oleh Sinegubov on the Telegram messaging service. It was not immediately clear how many troops had reached the Russian border and where.

Ukraine has been retaking territory in its northeast, driving Russian forces away from Kharkiv, the second-largest Ukrainian city.
