Russia exploiting a window of opportunity in Ukraine before US military aid arrives

# The Institute for the Study of War says Russian forces will likely make more significant tactical gains in the coming weeks as Ukraine waits for US military aid to arrive. This comes as president Vladimir Putin’s forces have made further gains in at least three locations along the eastern front in Ukraine. The institute says Russian forces appear to be intensifying efforts to destabilise Ukrainian defences and gain ground. Last week, US president Joe Biden signed into law the 1.81-trillion-rand foreign aid package to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.
