The Ukrainian military is inflicting “extraordinarily significant” losses on Russian forces attacking the town Vuhledar to the east of the country, President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.

Ukraine has been fighting to hold back a Russian offensive in Donbas while it waits for the arrival of new weapons promised by Western countries.

As the fighting on the ground carries on, U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to visit Poland to mark the first anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said he would discuss with Biden possibly increasing U.S. troop presence in Poland and making it more permanent.
