Although the lines of battle between Russian invaders and Ukrainian defense forces haven’t changed considerably, fighting in Donbas regions has become savage an official from the military stated the other day.

The battles in the Bakhmut sector of the Donetsk region has obliterated the Donetsk region, with thousands of artillery shells exploding across the region.

The Russians have been battling the Ukrainian military , in an attempt to drive them back from that region. The news reports in the region indicate that many civilians are have fled the region.

The area is an example within Ukraine that Russia is pushing. “What I would say is that in terms of how the battlefield looks, not significant adjustments to the battlefield, quite honestly, over the last couple of weeks,” the official in the military declared.

Three Russian, Kalibr cruise missile-capable ships in the Black Sea, and the airspace that covers Ukraine is still in dispute.

The official said Ukrainians have made great strides in the fusion of air defense systems from many different countries in order to create an integrated air defense system. Officials noted last week that the system shot down each unmanned aircraft that was aiming to strike Kyiv.

The official also spoke of the momentum behind world-wide donor countries. The United States will provide Bradley Fighting Vehicles to Ukraine. Germany and France have also provided armored vehicles. The Netherlands as well as The U. S. are upgrading T-72 tanks.

In addition, as well, U.S. and other partner nations will train Ukrainian forces in combined weapons operations. “What it really does is it demonstrates this continued commitment by NATO,” the official said, adding that the action is proof that the commitment to help Ukraine has not wavered.

“That equipment is one thing, using the equipment is another,” he said. “So, you’ve seen, you’ve seen again many of our allies, but, you know, step forward to offer some additional collective training as it relates to the use of that equipment. This gives Ukrainians an opportunity to continue to work on what they’ve been doing over the past 10 years — adjusting the way they fight to a more of a combined arms effort.”
