Ukraine’s government has said fighting in the eastern Donbas region has reached a new intensity.

Russia is attacking more than 40 towns and storming Ukrainian positions in several areas.

Among the Russian forces who’ve been fighting are two brothers. Their mother claims they were conscripted, despite President Vladimir Putin’s assurance that only professional soldiers had been deployed.

The Russian defence ministry has now admitted that conscripts were among military personnel involved in the Russian offensive in Ukraine.

They claimed that “virtually all such servicemen have now been returned to Russia”.
