In the counteroffensive, Ukraine is using a strategy of “systematically chipping away at (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s military,” an adviser to the president told the US daily.
Ukrainian troops are working to “uncover Russia’s operational logistics supply system and destroy it with artillery and HIMARS rocket launchers,” Arestovych added, adding that the tactic may be slower, but “there is no rush.”

The Kremlin may be increasing demands for self-censorship among Russian bloggers and war correspondents who write about the war in Ukraine. This was reported by the American Institute for the Study of War in its regular report on Saturday evening.
According to ISW, Moscow is failing to portray the war as a decisive Russian victory, so it may increase its censorship efforts. This is evidenced by the Friday arrest of prominent Russian blogger Semyon Pegov, writes the institute. Russia consistently rejects the term war and presents the invasion as a “special military operation.
In addition, the Russian army continues to struggle with a shortage of soldiers, recruiting recruits through state-owned enterprises and prisons. They are thus trying to avoid general mobilization.
In order to fulfill the assignment of Moscow, for example, Russian state railways want to convince 10,000 of their employees to go to fight in Ukraine, the Ukrainian General Staff said. According to The Kyiv Independent, they receive contracts for six months and a promise of a salary of 5,100 dollars (125,500 crowns) per month.
