Ukraine within 2 miles of Russian border near Kharkiv - US report

Ukrainian forces pushed Russian troops out of the region of Kharkiv and have advanced within two miles of the Russian border, media reported on Monday citing an unnamed senior United States defense official. Earlier in the day, the governor of Kharkiv claimed Ukraine already reached the border without providing details on the number of troops.

Meanwhile, the official said Russia has made progress in the Donbass towards Donetsk and noted Russian and Ukrainian forces are "increasingly exchanging artillery fire" in the region. The official also stated the US has seen no indication of Russia moving troops closer to Finland after Finland announced its intention to join NATO.
