Ukraine War News: Has Putin's Expected Offensive Already Begun?

Update from Thursday, February 9, 1:45 p.m .:

According to the US think tank Institute for the Study of War (ISW), Moscow’s expected spring offensive may have already begun.

In the most recent report on the Ukraine war, the institute writes that Russian troops in Ukraine have again won the initiative and launched a new offensive in eastern Ukraine.

Significant elements of at least three Russian divisions have been deployed to the area, the ISW said, adding that Ukrainian troops are still preventing major Russian gains at this time.

However, the offensive has probably not really picked up speed yet, it will probably start gradually.

News about the Ukraine war: Kyiv and Moscow report fierce fighting in the east

First message from Thursday, February 9th:

Kiev/Moscow – The first anniversary of the Russian invasion is approaching.

While important events in the Ukraine war can primarily be determined by the conquest and liberation of cities, the front has been stagnating for some time.

However, that doesn't mean the fighting is any less fierce.

Meanwhile, investigations into Vladimir Putin are causing an international stir.

The war in Ukraine is confusing.

Instead of conquering larger areas, Kyiv and Moscow recently reported that they had advanced in smaller towns.

The exact details overlap in the rarest of cases.

Conclusions can be drawn at least about the regional focal points of the fighting.

News about the Ukraine war: Heavy fighting near Kupjansk and Cherson

In their most recent military reports, both Russia and Ukraine report fierce fighting in the region around the city of Kupyansk.

While the general staff in Kyiv lamented the shelling of more than 25 settlements in the area, the defense ministry in Moscow wrote of the victory over two Ukrainian units.

Both warring parties in the Cherson region report similar things.

News in the Ukraine war: Investigations against Putin are reaching their limits

Meanwhile, new insights into Vladimir Putin's role in the downing of the MH17 passenger plane are causing a stir.

An international team of investigators investigated the incident in 2014.

At that time, pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine shot down the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 over contested territory.

According to investigators, there is now "strong evidence" that Putin himself decided to provide the separatists with the missile that later hit the plane.

At this point, however, the investigations reached their limits.

Thus, as head of state, Putin cannot be prosecuted.

The investigations could be a possible foretaste of the prosecution of war crimes in the Ukraine war.


Ukraine recently recaptured the city of Kupyansk from Russia.

However, fierce fighting in the region continues.
