As Ukraine advances, how close are we to a nuclear escalation? | DW News

While Ukraine counteroffensive makes gains in the south, the Kremlin says it still has to define the exact borders of the territory it is aiming to illegally annex. The outline of the areas its troops are occupying is rapidly changing.

In a major breakthrough, Ukrainian forces pushed back Russian defenses in the south of the country while expanding their rapid offensive in the east. They are seizing back more territory in areas annexed by Russia and threatening supply lines for Putin’s troops.
