The DPA reported. According to them, Russian troops intensified the fighting along the entire front line in the Donetsk region. Russia is undertaking offensive operations near the village of Zarichne and continues to try to advance around the town of Rubizhn in the Luhansk region, the DPA quotes. Fighting also continued around the town of Popasna, which, according to Ukrainian military sources, is already partially controlled by Russian troops. 8:00 A ground attack by Russian troops on the Azovstal Mariupol steelworks would probably require significant Russian losses, which would further reduce their overall combat effectiveness. The British Ministry of Defense stated this in the latest evaluation report on Thursday. Reuters reported. “The decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin to stop the attack on Azovstal probably indicates a desire to reduce Ukrainian resistance in Mariupol and release Russian forces, which will be deployed elsewhere in eastern Ukraine,” London said. According to the British force department in eastern Donbas, heavy shelling and fighting continues. 7:50 The destroyed Ukrainian city of Mariupol, despite Russia’s statements about its occupation, “continues to resist,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday. We have received the report from AFP. At the same time, Zelensky welcomed new aid from the United States aimed at fighting the Moscow offensive in eastern Ukraine. Russia had previously said it had “liberated” the besieged Mariupol. At the same time, there were still several thousand Ukrainian soldiers and thousands of civilians in the Azovstal steelworks complex in this port city. Mariupola’s “liberation” was also welcomed by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday. However, according to AFP, Zelensky said that the fighting for Mariupol was continuing.
