Russian Federation intensifies attacks southwest of Donetsk, but without "notable gains" - British intelligence

In March, Russian occupation forces increased the number of attacks southwest of Donetsk, but this did not give them any noticeable results.

According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the British Ministry of Defense on the social network X.

Reported Russian attacks to the south-west of Donetsk City rose from 721 in February to 806 in March, accounting for 38 per cent of all attacks across the front line. 

“Despite this effort, Russia did not make any notable gains in the area, and continues to contest small settlements including Novomykhailivka, Heorhiivka, and Urozhaine”, the statement reads.
