Russia reports progress in Donetsk, Ukraine shoots down drones

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced yesterday, Sunday, its control over the Chgari region in the Ukrainian Donetsk region, indicating in a statement that the army continues to control new sites in Ukraine, where it shot down 31 drones belonging to the Ukrainian army.

The Russian announcement came after a previous takeover of a village in eastern Ukraine and the downing of 8 drones, while Kiev announced that its air defense systems had downed 24 Russian drones, indicating that 3 people were injured as a result of Russian shelling in the east of the country.

The Russian Defense Ministry said its forces had taken control of the village of Sokil, about 30 km northwest of Donetsk, the capital of the region of the same name, which Moscow annexed in September 2022.

In contrast, the Ukrainian Air Force said air defense systems shot down 24 of the 27 Russian drones launched over 12 regions of the country in an overnight attack.

This comes amid reports of difficulties facing the Ukrainian army in terms of recruitment and obtaining more weapons and ammunition from the West, as Russian forces continue to advance on the ground "slowly" for months.

This is coupled with repeated warnings by Ukrainian officials that Moscow may try to attack the northeastern border areas, which reportedly increases its advantage at a time when Ukraine is suffering from delays in Western aid.

On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “severe” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.

Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine following a unilateral referendum in March 2014.
