Ukrainian forces advanced dozens of miles into the Russian-occupied territories of Luhansk and Kherson on Monday, just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed to annex the regions.

The Russian-installed chief of occupied Kherson told Russian state television that Ukrainian forces had seized control of the city of Dudchany, indicating an advance of roughly 25 miles in a single day, according to Reuters.

“The information is tense, let’s put it that way, because, yes, there were indeed breakthroughs,” the official, Vladimir Saldo told Russian state television.

“There’s a settlement called Dudchany, right along the Dnipro River, and right there, in that region, there was a [Ukrainian] breakthrough. There are settlements that are occupied by Ukrainian forces,” he continued.
