    The heaviest fighting is currently ongoing in the city of Severodonetsk, which is now largely under Russia control. Capturing it entirely would put Putin’s forces on the cusp of taking Luhansk provinceone of his key war aims.

    Ukrainian forces in the region are taking heavy losses. Neil Hauer, a journalist who has spent time on the frontlines, revealed one soldier he is in contact with saw 56 men in his 60-man squad killed in a recent rotation to the front.

    But the fighting is taking a huge toll on Russian forces as well.

    Though their tactics have improved since the botched effort to take Kyiv, Putin’s generals are facing Ukrainians who are better armed and prepared than they were in the opening weeks of the war.

    Western officials briefing journalists on Wednesday estimated that Russian forces have been ground down to around half the strength they had before the war startedwhen between 150,000 そして 190,000 troops were massed on the border.

    より多い 1,000 tanks have been destroyed by Ukraine, the West believes, which Russia is struggling to replace as sanctions deprive the country of key components needed to build more.

    Russian forces are expected to keep advancing through the next days and weekstargeting the city of Lysychansk after Severodonetsk falls, which is located just a few hundred yards away across the Donets River.

    If they are able to take Lysychansk then the next targets will be Slovyansk and Kramatorsk, located some 35 miles to the West.

    Those cities are two of the last remaining Ukrainian strongholds in the Donetsk region. Control over that region and Luhansk will allow Putin to claim ‘liberationover Donbas, which he says is the sole aim of his ‘special military operation’.

    だが, as Russia’s forces are ground down in combat and occupy an ever-larger portion of Ukrainian territory, it remains to be seen whether they can hold it.

    Ukraine has shown the ability to mount successful counter-attacks in areas where Russia is weak, such as around Kyiv just before Putin withdrew his troops and to the north of Kharkiv last monthpushing Russia back to its own border.

    A fresh counter-attack is currently underway in the south, towards the city of Kherson which has been occupied since the early days of the war.

    Ukrainian tanks and armoured personnel carriers have been filmed crossing the Inhulets River in recent days, and have pushed Russian defenders back from several small towns on the other side.

    Fighting is believed to be ongoing in the region with Russian believed to be moving reinforcements to try and hold their defensive lines, though the exact situation is unclear with Ukraine’s military saying little.

    The industrial hub of Severodonetsk has become a key target for Moscow, and the local governor said that 80 per cent of the city was now under Russian control.

    ‘Street fighting continues,’ said Lugansk regional governor Sergiy Gaiday on Telegram, pledging Ukrainian forces ‘will fight for Severodonetsk until the end’.

    ‘The most difficult situation is in the Lugansk region, where the enemy is trying to displace our units from their positions,’ said Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, the commander in chief of Ukraine’s armed forces, according to a statement from the military.

    ‘The enemy has a decisive advantage in artillery,’ Zaluzhnyi told France’s top general, Thierry Burkhard, in a phone call, adding he want his units to be equipped with weapons of the type used by military alliance NATO. ‘It will save lives’.

    American is soon expected to send HIMARS rocket systems to Ukraine, bolstered by stocks of other rocket systems sent by the UK and Germany.

    The weapons are considered to be ‘game-changersby Kyiv because they have much longer ranges than their current guns and are specifically designed to counter Russian systems.

    They are the centrepiece of a $700 million package unveiled Wednesday that also includes air-surveillance radar, more Javelin short-range anti-tank rockets, artillery ammunition, ヘリコプター, vehicles and spare parts.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov accused Washington of ‘adding fuel to the firewith the new weapons, although US officials insist Ukraine has promised not to use them to strike into Russia.

    US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said there were no signs of Russia pulling back its forces: ‘As best we can assess right now, we are still looking at many months of conflict.
