Meanwhile, Russian troops are retaliating with an offensive in Donbas.

This is evidenced by a fresh map of military operations from British intelligence, published on the official website of the British Ministry of Defense.

According to British intelligence, the Ukrainian army is attacking

in five directions:

the Kramatorsk direction, north of Lyman, Kryvorizky, Kherson and Kryvorizky directions.

As can be seen from the map, the ZSU is most likely trying to take

the Russian grouping of troops into a cauldron near Liman. 

The armed forces of the Russian Federation are advancing

in three eastern directions: the Luhansk, Donetsk and Kramatorsk directions. 

As the map shows, since the beginning of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces, the number of territories in the so-called "gray zone" that are considered controversial continues to grow.

As of September 27, they were recorded in the Mykolaiv, Zaporizhzhya, Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk directions.

The largest area of ​​the "gray zone" is in the Zaporozhye direction. 

The illegal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine is continuing.
