Russia-Ukraine war live: Putin’s forces ‘pushed back’ in Kharkiv as Zelensky cancels all foreign trips

The strategic town of Vovchansk near Ukraine's border with Russia has seen partial success in pushing back Russian forces, according to Ukrainian military reports. This town now serves as a crucial defensive line against the advancing Russian troops in the Kharkiv region, following the Kremlin's recent assault, which marks a significant escalation after years of conflict. Ukraine's general staff, in a Facebook update, claimed that their forces had effectively countered the incursion of Kremlin troops, particularly in the north and northwest sectors of Vovchansk. Local reports suggest Russian troops are establishing positions within the town. Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has prioritized the domestic situation, canceling all foreign trips to focus on the evolving frontline dynamics. Zelensky's press secretary, Sergii Nykyforov, announced via Facebook that all upcoming international engagements have been deferred, with new schedules to be arranged. Zelensky's intended visits to Spain and Portugal for discussions on bilateral agreements have been affected by this decision. The developments underscore the intensifying conflict and the urgency for Ukraine to repel Russian advances while also navigating diplomatic engagements crucial for international support and solidarity.
