Ukrainian soldiers claim reaching Russian Border; UK Intel says Russian army losing steam

The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence has released an update on the situation in Ukraine where it has stated that Russian forces have suffered losses of one-third of its ground force combat since February. It added in its report that the Russian campaign in the East of Ukraine had lost momentum and was significantly behind schedule.

Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Interior Ministry adviser Vadim Denisenko had earlier told a television network in the country that Kyiv’s troops in the Kharkiv region had almost reached the border with Russia.

According to a Reuters report, Ukraine’s defence ministry said in a Facebook post that the 227th Battalion of the 127th Brigade of Ukraine’s Territorial Defence Forces had reached the border with Russia, adding: “Together to victory!”

Ukraine’s ex-ambassador to Austria has now shared a video on Twitter showing Ukrainian soldiers reaching the Ukraine-Russia border.

Translating the video in the caption, Mr Olexander Scherba says, “Mr. President, we reached Ukraine’s state border with the enemy state.  Mr. President, we made it! Glory to #Ukraine! Glory to Heroes!”

In one of the points released, the ministry said, “Russian forces are increasingly constrained by degraded enabling capabilities, continued low morale and reduced combat effectiveness. Many of these capabilities cannot be quickly replaced or reconstituted, and are likely to continue to hinder Russian operations in Ukraine.”

Local officials in Ukraine’s second city of Kharkiv in the north have said Russian troops were withdrawing from the surrounding region amid Ukrainian counter-attacks.
