Senior Ukrainian officials and leaders had hinted in July that counterattacks against Russia would soon begin. It was revealed that the United States took the initiative for this anti-Russian operation in Ukraine and significantly increased the extent of assistance for it. Advanced weapons and defence systems were provided to the Ukrainian Army by training Ukrainian units at various European bases. At the same time, the US intelligence agency and technology companies are also assisting Ukraine. Therefore, based on this support, Ukraine increased the intensity of its counteroffensive against Russia and is now gaining success.
