How much area Ukraine recaptured from Russian invaders?

Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24 this year, how much area has Ukraine recaptured from Russian. Last month, Ukrainian soldiers recaptured Husarivka, a farming village with a peacetime population of 500-600 some 150 km southeast of the city of Kharkiv, after heavy fighting following the Russian invasion on February 24.

Ukraine recaptured from Russian

On Apr 02, Ukrainian authorities say their forces have recaptured the town of Brovary, 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of the capital Kyiv.

The focus of the conflict on Donbas has shifted after Russia failed to capture Kyiv during the first phase of the war. The Russians were defeated by a combination of factors, including geography, the rudeness of the attackers and modern weapons, as well as Ukraine’s ingenuity with smartphones and pieces of foam mat.

According to officials, Ukrainian troops have recaptured hundreds of villages around Kyiv and other districts. The recaptured cities were left with the scars of five weeks of fighting, destroyed armoured vehicles, military equipment and dozens of bodies scattered on the streets.
