The war in Ukraine is relevant

Fierce battles continue for Soledar and Bakhmut. As the White House noted the day before, Russian occupation forces do not have full control over any of these cities. Control over Soledar, according to US intelligence, remains disputed.

Currently, in the Bakhmut area, the occupiers are observing tactics of trying to squeeze out Ukrainian troops, explained David Sharp, a military observer from Israel. He admits that the enemy can extend this tactic to large areas of the front.

The day before, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation recorded 11 warships of the Russian Federation in the Black Sea with a total salvo of 40 Kalibr missiles, which may indirectly indicate Russia’s preparation for launching new strikes on Ukraine.
