Russian forces are pulling back from the city of Kharkiv after strong opposition from the Ukrainian army, according to officials.

Ukrainian and Western leaders monitoring the situation told The New York Times that Russia is facing a military setback as Ukrainian troops fight back in Kharkiv.

Ukrainian officials predict that Russian troops will head southeast toward Izium, which Moscow’s forces overtook last month.

Izium has become the newest battleground as fighting has intensified as Russia has built up operations in the city.

Officials say that the retreat from Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine, will represent one of the largest blows to the Russian army since its retreat from Kyiv in April.
