Russia attempts major offensive operations: UK

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, FEB 7 - "It is highly likely that Russia has been attempting to re-start major offensive operations in Ukraine since early January 2023," with the most certain operational goal "to capture the remaining Ukrainian-held parts of Donetsk Oblast," UK's Ministry of Defence said in its latest intelligence update today. However, "Russian forces have only managed to gain several hundred metres of territory per week. This is almost certainly because Russia now lacks the munitions and manoeuvre units required for successful offensives," the report reads. (ANSA).
