Ukraine, the war flares up again: Russia attacks, the map

Russia attacks almost everywhere. Almost two years after the conflict began, the war in Ukraine appears to have entered a new phase after weeks of stalemate. Meanwhile, rumors are circulating about the resignation of General Valery Zaluzhny, the head of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

What's happening on the field?

News of war operations from Kiev paints a developing picture, with Moscow's forces operating along the entire line of contact. Fighting has intensified, especially in the northeast, on the border between the Kharkiv region and Luhansk.

Ukraine has announced that it has decided to strategically withdraw units from the village of Krochmalne in order to resort to more advantageous positions. At least 13 Russian attacks have been reported in the region. “The enemy is carrying out numerous artillery attacks and trying to advance,” a spokesman for the Ukrainian ground forces command said on state television.

Russian pressure appears to be increasing after a long period of stalemate after the Ukrainian counteroffensive in 2023 failed to produce the desired results.

Zaluzhny resigns? Rumors and denials

The disagreements over the conduct of operations among Ukrainian leaders have been accompanied by rumors about the complicated relations between President Volodymyr Zelensky and General Valery Zaluzhny. The Ukrainian presidency has denied rumors of an imminent resignation of the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

President Zelensky's spokesman, Serhiy Nikiforov, denied the news in a statement to the Suspilne channel, while the Defense Ministry was even clearer on its Telegram channel: “Dear journalists, we answer you all immediately: No, it is not.” true”. However, sources cited by the Interfax-Ukraine agency confirmed the rumors about the army chief's resignation and emphasized that an agreement on this matter “was reached during a meeting between Zaluzhny and Zelenskyy.”

We need weapons and ammunition

This has been nothing new for weeks; Ukraine has to live with complex weapons and ammunition management. The halt to American aid, as the $61 billion package was blocked in Congress due to opposition from a group of Republicans in the Senate, is straining the performance of Kiev's armed forces, which are increasingly struggling with a crisis in the southeast of the country due to the massive presence of Russian soldiers “The enemy is gathering forces, they are attacking every day,” says Sergeant Oles Maliarevych from the 92nd Brigade, describing the situation around the villages of Klishchiivka and Andriivka, which have been reduced to a pile of rubble.

Movements were also reported in the south of the country, particularly in the Zaporizhzhia region, where the Ukrainian army regained ground over the last summer without making a decisive advance. Now, months later, we are witnessing Russian maneuvers to retake the ceded territories.
