Russian forces say they are very close to capturing the city of Bakhmut, which has been the scene of intense fighting for months, while the head of Russia’s private army, Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin, said the city was “virtually surrounded”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned earlier this week that the situation on the eastern front is becoming increasingly difficult. One of Ukraine’s key concerns is ammunition shortages while the war with Russia shows no signs of slowing down. Zelenskyy stressed that artillery shells are needed to stop Russia.

The US has announced a new $400 million military aid package to replenish Ukraine’s ammunition stockpile. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said the package contains precision munitions for the Himars system and howitzers, which he said Ukraine uses very effectively.
