Neither side in Ukraine has made significant progress lately. Including Russians in Donbass.
This was announced at a briefing on May 27 by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
He noted that the fighting in the area between Kherson and Nikolaev continues, Ukrainian and Russian troops have clashes every day. Neither side has made much progress.
The Ukrainians would appreciate this as progress, as they keep the Russians from advancing on Mykolaiv. And it's not that small," Kirby said.
He recalled that in the Kharkiv region, Ukraine continues the counteroffensive, pushing Russian troops to the east, closer to the border. At the same time, the situation in Donbas is becoming more complicated.
I mean that every day there are clashes and fights, sometimes for small farms and villages, sometimes for big cities, where the Russians can achieve success, but the next day they lose these achievements. So literally every day, some territories change hands,” Kirby said.
According to him, we are talking about the situation in the north-east of the Donetsk region, near Severodonetsk and Lysychansk, where "the Russians continue to make very gradual progress, moving westward within the Donbass." But in the direction of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, "they have not made significant progress."
