Ukrainian Army Faces Russian Offensive Amidst Ammunition Shortages

Ukrainian military officials have issued a stark warning, asserting that Russia is actively engaged in offensive operations across much of the frontlines.

This intensification of hostilities comes as Ukraine’s armed forces grapple with dwindling ammunition supplies and await stalled funding from the United States Congress.

While Ukraine made modest territorial gains last summer, its ambitions to disrupt Russia’s land corridor to Crimea were partially realized.

The forces attempted to push south from Orikhiv to Tokmak but only reached Robotyne, a little over 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) south.
