The Ukrainian military has advanced to the Robotino region and is also advancing along the line of Russian fortifications in Verbovoye, Zaporozhye region. The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) reported this on Tuesday, September 5th.

It is noted that Ukrainian troops are advancing in the west of the Zaporozhye region.

Geolocation data indicates that Russian troops are striking Ukrainian positions northwest and west of Robotiny. This indicates that Ukrainian forces have advanced into the area. Although Russian troops previously claimed that they controlled it.

ISW assumes that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are advancing along the line of Russian fortifications running along Robotinoye.

Ukrainian military sources also confirmed that Ukrainian forces had achieved success in the Robotino-Novoprokopovka direction south of Orekhov, and also reported that Ukrainian forces were conducting successful offensive operations south of Bakhmut.

The Institute also suggests that counter-offensive operations on the border of the Donetsk and Zaporozhye regions were successful.

The Ukrainians pinned down units of the 7th Guards Airborne Division of the Russian Federation and did not allow them to redeploy to critical sectors of the front in the western part of the Zaporozhye region.
