Russia has sustained a substantial number of casualties at the hands of Ukraine

According to reports from Ukraine, its armed forces are giving Russian troops trying to move into the eastern Donbas region a tough fight, causing substantial casualties among Moscow’s armed forces.

Independent researchers and observers, including some pro-Russian bloggers, have condemned Moscow’s effort to capture the city of Lysychansk, claiming it was too costly. They think that the endeavor should not have been undertaken.

The majority of the Luhansk region, except for a few pockets of resistance, is now occupied by Russian forces. They are making progress toward the Donetsk cities of Kramatorsk and Sloviansk.

Russia has sustained a substantial number of casualties at the hands of Ukraine

Russia is using all of its available resources.

Russian and Ukrainian forces are currently involved in “intense fighting” on the boundaries of the Luhansk region. Because some Russian troops are being strategically withdrawn to regroup, the Russian armed forces have sustained many casualties, both killed and injured. The hospitals and the mortuaries are at total capacity with patients and bodies.

According to the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Russian artillery fired on Ukrainian military positions located in Luhansk “near Lysychansk in the direction of Bakhmut.” These attacks resulted in the deaths of six people and the injury of 21 others. According to the General Staff, attacks in the nearby Donetsk area targeted “the entire territory of the region,” which included Sloviansk.

The Russian parliament passed the first round of voting on economic measures to boost the military.

The Russian government’s lower chamber of parliament, known as the State Duma, has approved a new package of economic measures designed to bolster the country’s armed forces.

If the laws are passed, legal entities in Russia will not be able to decline contracts with the Russian armed forces. However, several rounds of the parliamentary procedure are still to go.

Even though Russian officials call the war in Ukraine “a special military operation,” the new measures would effectively mean that the country is reshaping its industry in support of the ongoing invasion, putting the country on a war economy footing.

Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov remarked that he brought attention to the “enormous sanction pressure” coming from the West.

For the economic measures to be enacted into law, they will still have to go through the State Duma’s second and third readings, be examined by the chamber that sits above the State Duma, and receive the signature of President Vladimir Putin.

Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24. Although it has made advances in the eastern part of the country, it has also sustained significant casualties regarding its military and equipment.

Zelensky advocates for advanced air defenses

After Russian forces attacked targets located in the Khmelnytskyi region of western Ukraine on Tuesday evening, resulting in the activation of air raid sirens all over the country, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, issued a request to western allies to provide his country with a sophisticated and efficient air defense system.

Residents of Donetsk are being urged to leave the city.

As Russian soldiers move closer to the eastern territories, the Ukrainian government is asking the remaining population of the Donetsk region to relocate to safer areas as the conflict escalates.

In response to the missile attack in Toretsk on Wednesday, the head of the Donetsk regional military administration, Pavlo Kyrylenko, made the following statement: “Russia has turned the entire Donetsk region into a hot spot where it is dangerous to remain for civilians.” [citation needed]

Ukraine maintains control over 45 percent of Donetsk, but Russian forces are heading toward Kramatorsk and Slovyansk after capturing Lysychansk in the nearby Luhansk province. This comes after the Russian troops took control of Lysychansk. The evacuations rate has picked up due to further strikes, but most people have already departed the city.
