In the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, experts say they are seeing signs of a counteroffensive by Ukraine. This news comes as tensions remain high on day 468 of the Russian invasion. The New York Times reports that U.S. officials are closely monitoring the situation and believe that Ukraine may be on the verge of launching a major attack against Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country.
According to Reuters, a recent podcast on the topic also suggests that Ukraine’s counter offensive has begun. The podcast features experts who say that Ukraine has been preparing for a significant military operation for some time and may finally be ready to launch.
Meanwhile, reports from DW News suggest that the conflict is increasingly spilling over into Russia. Cross-border attacks by Ukrainian forces have hit Russian targets, leading to concerns that the war may soon reach Russian soil.
Despite the ongoing conflict, Ukraine’s Western backers continue to look for ways to support the country. National Review reports that these backers are now searching for ways to create “battlefield drama” that will highlight the situation in Ukraine and put pressure on Russia to back down.
The conflict between Ukraine and Russia shows no signs of ending anytime soon. As both sides prepare for what could be a major battle, the world watches and waits to see what will happen next.
