Ukraine’s military says its troops have recaptured 3,000 square kilometers, three times the previous area, during a rapid counteroffensive in northern, eastern and southern Ukraine.

Although the BBC cannot independently verify Ukraine’s figures (with journalists having no access to the front lines), Russia’s Ministry of Defense has confirmed the withdrawal of its troops from three key cities.

If confirmed, the pace of the counterattack seems to have caught Russia off guard.
