The summary of the 198th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 9th September 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Ukrainian offensive in Kharkiv Oblast is progressing at steady peace. The advancing forces reached Kupyansk and liberated a number of settlements along the way. Russian Army is gathering all available reserves to stop the Ukrainian offensive at Oskil river, at least. There are many rumors currently floating on Twitter and other social media, but we have to wait on for confirmation for many.

Russian forces, likely due to shifting its forces towards Kharkiv Oblast, decreased the number of attacks everywhere else. They have a minor success in Donetsk Oblast, but compared to Ukrainian offensive, it’s not worth mentioning.
