Russian forces are expanding their presence in eastern Ukraine

Russian forces are attempting to take full control of the besieged city of Mariupol, Ukrainian forces said, before an intense spate of fighting is expected in the east of the country as Moscow strengthens its positions there.

The fate of Mariupol, a port city on the Sea of ​​Azov that was the scene of some of the war’s most intense shelling, has both strategic and psychological significance. If Russia takes control of the city, it would be a significant sign of progress as it expands from the territories it already controls in the Donbass region towards the Crimean Peninsula, which it annexed in 2014.
