Russische troepen verzamelen zich voor doorbraakpoging in Oekraïne

March 4, 2024 - Russia is accumulating large forces around Chasiv Yar in eastern Ukraine as it intensifies efforts to make a strategic breakthrough in the Donetsk region.

Ukrainian official Illia Yevlash told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty on Friday that Russian forces were concentrating efforts to make a powerful push on the key strategic city to the west of Bakhmut, which fell to Moscow last May, hoping to advance toward Kostiantynivka, Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.

Ukrainian forces battling Russian efforts to advance in the Bakhmut direction say they have been experiencing a large Russian push over the last three weeks and are facing constant attacks as Moscow troops send in wave after wave of infantry and target them with a variety of artillery and drones.

With the full-scale war now into its third year, Russian forces have been bludgeoning some Ukrainian defensive positions into submission, deploying overwhelming amounts of artillery and troop numbers in an effort to punch through defensive lines at targeted points, AP said.
