Heavy fighting has also been reported near Kherson Oblast, where Ukrainian forces have consistently attacked Russian positions around the city.

The heavy fighting has taken its toll on both sides, although fierce Ukrainian resistance has worked to delay Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war goals and led him to acknowledge that the conflict could go on for some time.

Russian troops will also now be forced to battle Ukraine’s winter climate, another possible roadblock amid reports earlier this week that the country’s military lacks sufficient clothing and equipment to fight the elements.

“Putin announced yesterday that Russia is in this battle for a long time, which is almost certainly true. But we can expect the active combat phase to slow down now that winter has arrived. Otherwise, more soldiers will freeze to death than from injury,” Koffler said. Putin is likely to resume major strike operations in early spring.”
