Ukrainian forces recently advanced to the Donetsk border, taking the towns of Balakleya and Izium and threatening Krasny Liman. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Wednesday that his general staff had decided to redeploy Russian forces from the Kharkov region in order to“to strengthen the strike capabilities of Russian forces in the Donbass.”

Shoigu also said that all attempts by the Ukrainian army to advance on the Kherson front, between Nikolaev and Krivoy Rog, had been thwarted by“significant losses”.

According to Shoigu, kyiv had planned its operations“only to create the illusion in front of Western backers that the Ukrainian military is capable of carrying out an offensive.”

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government and its supporters have called the recent advance a “turning point” in the conflict with Russia. President Vladimir Zelensky pledged to“releaseall of Donbass and parts of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions currently controlled by Russian and allied forces – as well as Crimea, which voted to join Russia in 2014.
