Russia's Large-Scale Assault On Ukraine Enters Second Year

DONBAS, UKRAINE - FEBRUARY 24: A Ukrainian Army soldier unloads ammunition for a belt-fed machine gun for new replacement troops going through combat training on February 24, 2023 in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine. According to the group's commander, his unit was badly depleted in recent weeks of vicious fighting against Russian Wagner mercenary forces, losing more than half its combat strength due to wounded and killed in action. He said that although his troops routinely decimate large groups of enemy forces, who attack his frontline positions in wave after wave of frontal assaults, the Russians still inflict significant damage. Fresh Ukrainian recruits are now being quickly trained, so the unit can return to the frontline at full strength. One year ago, Russia's military invaded Ukraine from three sides and launched airstrikes across the country. Since then, Moscow has withdrawn from north and central parts of Ukraine, focusing its assault on the eastern Donbas region, where it had supported a separatist movement since 2014.
