Russian troops launched multiple attacks west of the recently captured town of Avdiivka, aiming for further gains, according to a Ukrainian army spokesperson.

Kyiv has also initiated a war crimes investigation following reports of Russian troops shooting captured Ukrainian soldiers. Russia claims some Ukrainian troops remain at the Avdiivka coking coal plant.

Due to manpower and ammunition shortages, Ukraine has withdrawn from Avdiivka in eastern Donetsk, marking Moscow’s first significant territorial gain since May last year.

Ukrainian forces reported repelling 14 Russian attacks near Lastochkyne, west of Avdiivka, with significant defences in place.

Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced at the Munich Security Conference that Denmark will donate all its artillery to Ukraine, citing other European countries holding surplus munitions.

She emphasised the urgency expressed by Ukrainians for ammunition and artillery. Frederiksen highlighted Russia’s destabilising actions globally and the need to support Ukraine amidst ongoing conflict.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky urged not to ask Ukraine about the war’s end but to question why Putin can still prolong it. He emphasised Ukraine’s determination to reclaim its land and highlighted the potential for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s defeat.

The UK’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, David Lammy, backs more sanctions on Russia, aiming to strengthen existing measures. He warns of Russia’s ongoing threat to Europe for the foreseeable future.

European intelligence has uncovered over 100 Kremlin documents, revealing a disinformation campaign aimed at undermining Zelensky. The campaign involved thousands of social media posts and fabricated articles, targeting Zelenskiy and his top army commander.

German politician Ricarda Lang has rejected the idea of a peace deal with Russia, citing Putin’s actions, including the recent death of Alexei Navalny, as evidence of his lack of interest in peace.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas brushed off a warrant issued by Russia for her arrest, calling it an intimidation tactic amid speculation about her potential EU role.

She affirmed that such actions from Russia were expected, expressing no fear. And when asked about a future European role, she indicated it was not currently under consideration.
