TheVoiceOfJoyce UN Secretary General in Brussels is urging Ukrainians allies to speed up production of ammunition and all weapons and planes requested. He has assured everyone, Russia is gearing up for a more intensive invasion. Why not give Zelensky the planes he requested? Perhaps he can destroy ammunition depots and missile silos? Why not hobble Putin’s ability to destroy Ukraine’s critical infrastructure? Bakhmut has not been encircled and the War will move on to Ukraine’s other territories. The Ports are problematic, the mines may have broken loose making navigation more difficult? We’ll see soon enough where phase two of Putin’s War on Ukraine. With their intelligence and understanding of their terrain, I’m betting on the Ukrainians. They’re counteroffensive must be effective to free them, Moldova and any other country, Putin might claim.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy thanked Ukrainian soldiers for “preventing the occupiers from encircling Bakhmut”. The capture of Bakhmut would give Russia a new foothold in the Donetsk region and constitute a rare victory after months of setbacks.

In the last three days, Wagner Group forces have almost certainly made further small gains around the northern outskirts of Bakhmut, including into the village of Krasna Hora, the UK Ministry of Defence said Tuesday. However, organised Ukrainian defence continues in the area and the tactical Russian advance to the south of the town has likely made little progress, the latest British intelligence report adds.

Ukraine’s allies have begun training Ukrainian troops on the Leopard 2 and other modern battle tanks. Germany started training Ukrainian soldiers on the Leopards on Monday at an army base in the northern town of Munster. Ukrainian troops are also being trained by Polish, Canadian and Norwegian instructors at a military base in Swietoszow, south-west Poland.
