Forces advanced 20 miles through Kherson to Dudchany.

Footage showed Ukrainian soldiers liberating the village of Novopetrivka and ripping a Russian flag from a pylon.

They then wiped their feet on it before setting it alight.

Nato says Putin has deployed a nuclear submarine equipped with an underwater drone that could allegedly cause a 1,640ft radioactive tsunami.

A Kremlin spokesman said Russia did not take part in “nuclear rhetoric” spread by the West.

In the early hours of yesterday, conventional Russian missiles crashed into the outskirts of the eastern Ukraine-controlled city of Kramatorsk. 

One failed to detonate and a woman was pulled from the rubble of her home.
