There have been hardly any reports of major movement on the front in Ukraine recently. And that shouldn’t change with the winter weather.
According to the British Ministry of Defense, neither Russia nor Ukraine are making significant progress in their fighting. “As colder winter weather sets in in eastern Ukraine, there are few immediate prospects of major changes on the front line,” the ministry said in its daily update in London.
In the past week, the most intense ground fighting took place in three areas: in the Kupyansk area on the border between the Kharkiv and Luhansk regions, around the city of Avdiivka in the Donetsk region and on the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, where Ukrainian forces have established a bridgehead on the actually on the Russian-occupied southern bank.
“Neither side has made significant progress in any of these areas,” the British wrote on the short message service X (formerly Twitter). “Russia continues to suffer particularly heavy losses around Avdiivka.” Eyewitness reports suggested that small drones and artillery – particularly cluster munitions – continued to play an important role in disrupting enemy attacks.
The British Ministry of Defense has been publishing daily information on the course of the war since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine. Moscow accuses London of disinformation.
