Live updates show Russian troops gaining ground near strategically important city in Ukraine.

David Cameron, the new foreign secretary, has a meeting with Zelensky.

The Ukrainian military has fortified their position on the eastern front while Russian troops have made small advancements in their efforts to capture a crucial city on that front.

Russian forces, led by army chief Valery Gerasimov, who is known for his preference for aggressive vehicle-based attacks, have been trying to surround the city of Avdiivka in Donetsk Oblast.

Recently, Ukrainian drone operators shared footage that revealed Russian military forces had progressed approximately seven kilometers to the northwest of Avdiivka.

However, in the area directly west of Avdiivka, additional footage revealed a cluster of approximately 20 Russian armored vehicles that had been hit by Ukrainian counter battery fire.

The attack by Russian forces on the city in eastern Ukraine has resulted in significant losses for the attackers.

Last week, Ukrainian General Valery Zaluzhny stated that they suspected Russia had suffered the loss of more than 100 tanks and 250 armored vehicles in the last six weeks solely from their attack on Avdiivka.


Russian President Putin has reportedly granted clemency to two individuals who participated in the conflict in Ukraine and were convicted of cannibalism.

Denis Gorin, one of the men, was hired by a private military company through a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense. However, he has a criminal record of three convictions for killing at least four individuals from 2003 to 2022.

According to Sibir Realii, a news source associated with Radio Free Europe, he was found guilty of consuming the bodies of his victims along with his sibling.

Key findings from covert recordings of Russian troops in Ukraine reveal a grim fate for those trapped in the pit.

Covertly captured conversations of Russian soldiers communicating with their loved ones from the front lines in Ukraine provide a unique perspective on the war from a Russian standpoint.

During the second winter of the ongoing war in Ukraine, intercepted audio recordings from Russian soldiers reveal a increasing desire to leave the conflict. In their conversations, “200s” is used to refer to the deceased and “300s” to the wounded. The frequency of soldiers wanting to escape has become widespread enough that they also mention “500s” – individuals who refuse to participate in the fighting.

These discussions demonstrate the development of the war, starting with trained soldiers who led Vladimir Putin’s large-scale attack, to individuals from diverse backgrounds who were forced to participate in challenging circumstances.
