Russia gains territory in different parts of Ukraine

While attention turns to the advance of Vladimir Putin's troops on Kharkiv, Russian forces are taking advantage of Ukrainian weaknesses on several other fronts – particularly on the eastern border of the Russian-occupied Donetsk region.

Since February, when it captured the industrial city of Avdiivka, Russia has gained competitive advantages by advancing on several cities and towns amid a lack of artillery ammunition for Ukrainian forces, which are also suffering from the reduced number of troops deployed.

The Ukrainian General Staff indicated in an update published yesterday (14) that it is likely that troops will have to retreat in the region surrounding the village of Ocheretyne, captured by Russia earlier this month.

“In order to save the lives of our soldiers, our positions changed in some areas due to intense enemy fire,” states the General Staff report.

Ukrainian monitoring group DeepStateMap shows daily advances by Russian troops, who are getting closer and closer to the city of Pokrovsk, a military logistics hub for the entire eastern strip of the front line.

In the west, Ukrainian forces are also under pressure in the southern region of Zaporizhzhia, one of the few areas where Volodymyr Zelensky's forces have achieved success, albeit small, in the counteroffensive in recent months.

There are also reports of small Russian advances into pockets of territory that had already been recovered by Ukrainian forces, such as the area between the villages of Robotyne and Verbove.
