The Russian army is stuck in Ukraine

Russian forces did not make significant progressand Ukrainian forces took additional positions northeast of Kharkiv.

This is stated in the traditional daily review of the Institute for War Studies on the situation in Ukraine.

Ukraine’s counter-offensive north of Kharkiv has forced Russian troops to defend themselves and has stepped up reinforcements to prevent further Ukrainian troops from advancing on Russia’s border. Russian efforts along the southern axis in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions remain similarly stagnant, and Russian forces have not made significant progress in the face of ongoing successful Ukrainian defense.

In Ukraine: Offensive in Lugansk, counter-offensive in Kharkov

Are there any civilians still in Azovstal?

Russian forces continued to work to encircle Ukrainian positions in the Severodonetsk-Rubizhne-Lisichansk region, but made no confirmed progress.

It is possible that Russian forces will launch a new offensive against Bakhmut after the capture of Popasna to provide access to the highway north of Slavyansk.

Russian forces are trying to strengthen their positions in the western part of the Kherson region to enter the Nikolaev region.

Pro-Russian sources in the Telegram say Ukrainian forces may be conducting a counterattack 40km north of Izyum to cut off Russian troops in the key city, although the Institute for War Studies cannot confirm these reports at this time.

Adviser to Mariupol Mayor Petro Andryushchenko says Russian authorities are deporting those deemed “suspicious” during the Mariupol filtration measures in detention camp in Olenovka, Donetsk region.

Andryushchenko compared the facility to a concentration camp and said detainees were subjected to overcrowding, brutal conditions, mass interrogations and enforced disappearances.

The Institute for the Study of War cannot independently confirm these claims, but they fully correspond to the previously reported Russian “filtering” measures in occupied Ukraine.

In the last 24 hours, the Russian aggressors have been shelling Zaporizhia, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, Kharkiv and Poltava regions. 2 people were killed. 23 citizens were injured. These are the data from the regional military administrations.
