London: Russia suffers heavy casualties in Donetsk region

10.30 a.m .:

According to British secret services, Russia has suffered many casualties in the hard-fought Donetsk region.

In the past two weeks there has been intense fighting around the cities of Pavliwka and Wuhledar in the south of the region.

"Both Russia and Ukraine have deployed significant forces in this sector, with Russian naval infantry suffering heavy casualties," says a UK Defense Ministry report.

London is also taking the fighting as a sign that Russia is looking to the region as a possible launch pad for a northward offensive to capture the rest of the Ukrainian-held Donetsk region.

"However, it is unlikely that Russia will be able to concentrate qualitatively sufficient forces to achieve an operational breakthrough," it said.

Electricity restored almost everywhere in Kyiv

10:00 a.m.:

Four days after heavy Russian attacks, electricity is almost everywhere in the Ukrainian capital Kiev again.

The military administration announced that the supply of electricity, water, heat and the mobile network in the metropolis of three million had been almost completely restored since Sunday morning.

The repair work on the power grid is in the final phase.

Due to the high load, local failures could still occur.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyj had previously criticized Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko with unusual openness because of the power outages in Kyiv.

The former world boxing champion then warned of political disputes and called for solidarity.

Klitschko assured in the "Bild am Sonntag" that work was being done on restoring the power supply at "record speed".

On the night of Sunday, two rockets also hit a farm in a suburb of the southern Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia, the military said.

There were no dead or injured.

At least 13 people were injured in renewed Russian rocket attacks on the Ukrainian industrial city of Dnipro northeast of Kryvyi Rih on Saturday, according to military governor Resnichenko.
