Recent reports from Ukraine suggest that Ukrainian forces continue to recapture towns within the regions Moscow claimed last week to have annexed.
Russian military bloggers say Ukraine's tanks have been advancing within parts of Kherson.
Ukrainian soldiers have also removed Russian flags from the centre of Lyman - an eastern city they liberated over the weekend.
On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a lavish ceremony in Russia to formally annex four regions of Ukraine to Russia.
Referenda were held in Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporizhia and Kherson in recent days - they are four Russian-occupied areas in Ukraine - which combines are an area much bigger than the island of Ireland and around 15% of Ukraine's territory.
The results - which were described by the EU as a sham - were comprehensively in favour of joining the Russian Federation.
In response to the annexation of five Ukrainian regions since 2014, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed his country has formally applied to join NATO.
They're looking for accelerated membership, and he said Ukraine is already a "de facto" part of the alliance.
Russia has claimed Ukraine's ambitions to join the alliance were part of its reasoning for the invasion.
Before the invasion, it had demanded Ukraine sign legally binding guarantees that it would not join NATO.
