Russian Forces Intensify Their Offensive In Eastern Ukraine


Russian forces have stepped up their efforts to encircle the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut, where the commander of Ukraine’s ground forces described the situation as “extremely tense”.

Capturing Bakhmut, scene of some of the war’s bloodiest battles, would be Russia’s first major prize in more than six months and open the way for taking the last remaining urban centres in the Donetsk region, one of four Moscow claims to have annexed in its ”special military operation” in Ukraine.
