Western arms are shifting the battlefield

War-torn Ukraine can now inflict significant damages on the Russians, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said, and other Ukrainian authorities said an influx of Western weapons is shifting the battlefield. Zelensky said in his daily video message Monday that Ukrainian forces are "able to inflict significant logistical losses on the occupiers."  Volodymyr Zelensky admitted, "It is increasingly difficult for the Russian army to hold positions on the captured territory," adding, "Step by step, we advance, disrupt the supply of the occupiers, and identify and neutralize collaborators."

A Ukrainian official said

Ukrainian Armed Force commander-in-chief, Valeriy Zaluzhniy, said the "timely arrival" of longer-range artillery like the US HIMARS system was helping to change the battlefield. Zaluzhniy said that although the situation was complex and intense, they managed to stabilize it, and it was entirely under control. He added, "An important factor contributing to our retention of defensive lines and positions is the timely arrival of M142 HIMARS, which deliver surgical strikes on enemy control posts, ammunition, and fuel storage depots." A source has identified nearly twenty strikes far behind Russian lines in the Donetsk, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, and Kherson regions this month, a few of them causing large explosions and multiple detonations.

Ukrainian Armed Force, commander-in-chief thanked Mark Milley

Zaluzhniy thanked the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, in the United States, for the help of the US and its allies "in the struggle for freedom." The National Security and Defense Council secretary, Oleksiy Danilov, said an influx of enough weapons from their partner countries had established a certain parity in certain positions today; that was a different situation than it was a month ago.

Danilov also said Ukraine would like more weapons in the future to tip the balance in its favor. Therefore they have as many capabilities as possible to end this war as soon as possible. The head of the Luhansk regional military administration, Serhiy Hayday, said while speaking about the situation in Donbas Monday that "Western weapons work not at 100% but at 200% because Russian warehouses are blown up. Command posts are also blown up. "
