Since the start of their offensive, Russian forces have managed to capture several localities in this region bordering Russia and forced kyiv to send reinforcements there, so the Ukrainian army is already lacking resources.

Previously, Mr. Zelensky said that this could be the “first wave” of a broader offensive, in particular to seize Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second city.

President Vladimir Putin told him last week that the objective was to create a “buffer zone” in Ukrainian territory to put an end to bombings in Russian border areas.

On Tuesday, the spokesperson for Ukrainian forces in the region, Nazar Volochyn, said on television that kyiv had managed to “stabilize the situation in this region, particularly in the city of Vovchansk” at the heart of the fighting.

“The fighting continues in the north of the city of Vovchansk and in the Starytsia sector. The situation is under control,” the Ukrainian General Staff indicated on Tuesday afternoon.

Volodymyr Zelensky nevertheless indicated Tuesday evening that difficult fighting was still taking place in the east of the country, in the Donetsk region.

“The Pokrovsk sector and other sectors of the Donetsk region — Kramatorsk, Kurakhove — remain extremely difficult at present, the majority of fighting is currently taking place there,” he said.

According to the Ukrainian General Staff, in its afternoon briefing, the Russian army maintains a “high level of intensity” in the Pokrovsk sector and carried out 27 attempts there during the day to break through the Ukrainian defenses.
