The Armed Forces of Ukraine broke through the Russian defense line near the village of Verbove in the Zaporizhzhia region. Further, Ocheretuvate opens up in front of the military.

This was stated by the head of the Center for Military and Legal Studies Oleksandr Musienko in a comment to RBC-Ukraine.

According to Musienko, after the liberation of Robotyne, Ukrainian forces continued to advance in two directions. We are talking about the area of Novoprokopivka and Verbovo.

The breakthrough was the result of the search for a weak area in the enemy's defenses.

"Russia tried to save the situation by transferring paratroopers to this direction, but they were repulsed by Ukrainian forces. The Russians failed to conduct counterattacks, and our forces broke through the first line of defense - very strong and very fortified," he said.

It should be noted that Ukrainian troops broke through the enemy's defenses near Verbovo.
