(Bloomberg) -- Ukraine's Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal called on the country's allies to help Kyiv finish the war as soon as possible because drawing out the conflict favors the Kremlin.

Shmyhal said the military had achieved some successes in the south and in northern regions, without elaborating, in an interview with Bloomberg TV in Brussels, where he was attending a meeting of the EU-Ukrainian Association Council.

President Vladimir Putin was in Russia's Far East to attend military exercises that include Chinese forces, as well as to visit the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.

On the Ground

The Ukrainian counteroffensive is making progress and has degraded logistics and administrative capabilities in southern Russian-occupied areas, the Institute for the Study of War said. Russia conducted airstrikes throughout the south and east, according to Ukraine's General Staff. Russian rockets struck an oil depot in the Dnipropetrovsk region, destroying large fuel stockpiles, the head of the Kryvyi Rih military administration said. The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant remained cut off from the Ukrainian grid after losing its last direct connection due to a fire on Monday following shelling.

The Russian military launched a cruise missile from one of the Kuril Islands during the Vostok-2022 exercises in the country's Far East, Interfax reported, citing the Defense Ministry.
