Ukraine claims Russia’s troops ‘partially pushed back’ from key town, as Putin’s offensive ‘seems to slow down’ in latest Ukraine war update

In recent days, the UK’s House of Commons has addressed an urgent question on “Russia’s aggression relating to Ukraine and the situation in Georgia.” The conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues to escalate as Russia has been launching attacks on Ukraine. Additionally, there have been riots in Georgia as Russia seeks to pass a controversial “foreign agents” law. The question was tabled by Jim Shannon, a Democratic Unionist Party politician, and answering on behalf of the government was armed forces minister Leo Docherty.

Leo Docherty began his statement by noting that today marks day 811 of Putin’s “special military operation,” an operation that was supposed to last three days but has failed in all its objectives. However, the minister also acknowledged that the conflict is evolving and confirmed Russia’s latest assault on the Kharkiv region. He stated that this was likely a bid to divert Ukrainian resources away from other parts of the front line and threaten Kharkiv, which is the second-largest city in Ukraine.

The UK government has made it clear that they will not be distracted from their commitment to provide support to Ukraine. They have announced a vast package of aid in January and are continuing with ongoing efforts to support the Ukrainian military. Turning to Georgia, Leo Docherty expressed concern over events happening there and stated that the UK is observing them closely. He said that they are committed to supporting peaceful protest but are concerned about the introduction of a law on foreign influence.

He added that the UK is a close friend of Georgia and called for calm and restraint on all sides.
