The counter-offensives launched by the Ukrainian armed forces have stalled the advances of the invading Russian forces. 

This was stated by the ministry of defence of the United Kingdom. 

The defence ministry of United Kingdom has stated that the Russian forces are struggling with logistics. 

“They (Russia) are not being able to provide food and fuel to advancing forces due to the efforts of the Ukrainian military,” UK’s defence ministry said. 

The British intelligence services have also claimed that Russia has thus far failed to establish air superiority over Ukraine.
