Data from U.S. military satellites show that the Ukrainian Army has begun a counter-offensive operation, said New York Times citing the U.S. officials, Paralel.Az reports.

Unnamed U.S. officials claim that U.S. military satellites have observed increased activity in Ukrainian army positions. Infrared detectors on the satellites track artillery fire and missile launches.
