Fact-finding: Has Ukraine regained half of its territory since the Russian invasion?

Pressing exhausted and ill-equipped Russian forces against a more emboldened opponent represents the ultimate cover-up for the war in Ukraine.

Despite constant attacks on critical infrastructure and the threat of a nuclear escalation, Kyiv’s forces continue to inflict painful blows on President Vladimir Putin’s army and quickly seize many territories that Russia recently attempted to illegally annex.

Now, claims on social media indicate that Ukraine’s introduction accounts for half of the gains Russia has made since February.

A tweet posted on November 7, 2022 stated that Ukraine had “reclaimed 50% of what was newly occupied by the Russians in 2022 and 37% of what was occupied by Russia since 2014”.

The additional tweets provide detailed maps of these occupations and repeat the same claim.

Newsweek has reached out to DefMon3 for comment.

Fact-finding: Has Ukraine regained half of its territory since the Russian invasion?

Ukraine announced that its army managed to recover about six thousand square kilometers of the country’s territory from Russian forces, since launching its counterattack in the northeast of the country in early September. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken praised the “courage” of the Ukrainians in defending their country, warning that it was “too early” to predict the results of the counter-attack launched by the Ukrainians, stressing that “the Russians maintain very large forces in Ukraine, in addition to equipment and ammunition.”
