Ukrainian forces say they have recaptured a chunk of territory around the town of Bakhmut, but have made no major progress on the southern front, according to the country’s deputy defense minister.
However, evidence of attacks beyond the Russian front lines has been published. Kiev media have confirmed that Ukrainian saboteurs coordinated by the country’s military intelligence carried out a pair of drone strikes that hit bomber planes parked at airbases deep inside Russia.
This Wednesday morning, in addition, several Ukrainian drones were shot down by Russian defenses in the country’s capital and its surroundings. One of the devices exploded against a building under construction in a financial complex in the city without causing casualties.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has just returned from a whirlwind trip to three European capitals during which Denmark and the Netherlands promised F-16 fighter jets by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, an anti-corruption raid has been carried out on dozens of military enlistment offices, coinciding with kyiv’s key counteroffensive.
The Ukrainian government continues to clamp down on suspicions of corruption, including accusations that officials help Ukrainian citizens obtain disability certificates to avoid military service.
