Ukrainian forces: Russian forces plan to capture Chasiv Yar in the east before May 9.

Under the situation that Ukraine's military aid from the West is insufficient, the fighting with Russia has become increasingly difficult, while the Russian forces have stepped up their offensive.

The chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Oleksandr Syrskyi, said that the Ukrainian forces are fighting hard in the east, and the situation has deteriorated. The Russian forces plan to capture the eastern front-line town of Chasiv Yar and seize the control of the high ground before the "Victory Day of the Patriotic War" on May 9, and capture Chasiv Yar. Chasiv Yar is located in the Donetsk region, west of Bakhmut, which fell into the hands of the Russian forces in May last year.

Syrskyi pointed out that currently, the Ukrainian forces have temporarily withstood the Russian offensive near Chasiv Yar, and have strengthened the supply of military equipment, but the threat still cannot be ignored. The Russian forces plan to capture Chasiv Yar through Bakhmut, which has already fallen under Russian control, and then move westward to attack Kramatorsk.

Next month 9th is Russia's "Victory Day of the Patriotic War", which commemorates the day when the Soviet Union won over Nazi Germany in World War II. President Putin will preside over a large-scale military parade ceremony held in Red Square in Moscow as usual.
