The Ukrainian forces managed to achieve “stability” in the situation around Bakhmut, where the fiercest battles with the Russian forces have been concentrated for eight months, according to the statements of the Ukrainian army commander, Valery Zaluzhny. And the British intelligence services confirmed, on Saturday, Kiev’s assessments of the field situation, as it said that “the Russian attack on the city of Bakhmut in the Donbass region has faltered and has largely stopped.” And she said that “it is very likely that this will be the result of the severe depletion of the Russian forces,” noting at the same time that Kiev “suffered heavy human losses” as well.

British intelligence saw that Russia is currently focusing more on the city of Avdiivka, located to the south, and on the front sector near Kremina and Svatova to the north of Bakhmut, and London said that the Russians are seeking to install the front line there. British intelligence saw that this indicates that the Russian forces will reposition themselves again in a more defensive manner, after attempts to launch a major offensive failed to achieve “decisive results” since last January.

In addition, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with the Japanese newspaper “Yomiuri Shimbun”, published yesterday, described the military situation in the east of his country as “not good”, adding that the reason for this is “lack of ammunition”. Regarding the start of a possible counterattack, Zelensky said, “We cannot start yet,” noting that without tanks and artillery, “brave soldiers” cannot be sent to the front.
