May 13, 2024 - La ofensiva más reciente de Rusia ha expandido el campo de batalla a lo largo de la frontera, obligando a miles de civiles a huir de
Járkov, la segunda ciudad más grande de Ucrania.

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.
