Russia-Ukraine conflict reaches "strategic turning point"

 Russia's air and missile forces have carried out air strikes against the cities of Lutsk and Ivano-Frankivsk in western Ukraine over the past 24 hours.

However, the momentum of Russian forces on the ground is still limited due to logistics problems and Ukrainian resistance.

The UK's defense ministry commented: "The determined resistance of the Ukrainian air defense forces is forcing Russia to rely on anti-aircraft weapons to launch attacks against targets deeper inside Ukraine."

According to the British Ministry of Defense, Russian planes supporting ground forces are relying on "inaccurate" weapons and their use significantly increases the likelihood of civilian casualties.

Ukraine's General Staff also said that Russian forces were regrouping after "suffering heavy losses". Ukrainian soldiers pushed a number of enemy units into "adverse positions" near the Belarusian border, behind the main Russian army.

Explosions continued to be heard near the capital, Kiev, but it was not clear whether the attack came from Russia or Ukraine.
