القوات الروسية تفتح جبهة جديدة في أوكرانيا

By Jordi Bou

May 13, 2024 - أدى الهجوم الروسي الأخير إلى توسيع ساحة المعركة على طول الحدود، مما أدى إلى فرار آلاف المدنيين إلى خاركيف، ثاني أكبر مدينة في أوكرانيا.

Russia is claiming its forces have entered the north-eastern border town of Vovchansk, near Ukraine's second largest city Kharkiv.

Ukraine says there is still heavy fighting taking place there.

Russia has intensified its attacks on the region following a surprise incursion across the border on May 10, seizing several villages in one of the most significant ground attacks since its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Ukraine is on the defensive after months of slowed supplies of U.S. munitions. Russia's forces hold a significant advantage in manpower and munitions.

In 2022, soon after the start of their full-scale invasion, Russian forces reached the suburbs of the city of Kharkiv before being driven back to the border.
