ISW assesses that the coverage of Ukraine’s air defense forces is increasingly narrowed, scattered and inconsistently arranged along the front, which is contributing to Russia’s increase in attacks with controlled and glide bombs.

Thanks to the advantage of air strikes that have significantly weakened Ukraine’s forward positions, Russian ground forces are actively attacking and winning slowly but surely.

ISW experts recall that the Russian army used glide bombs to create an important tactical turning point in the process of capturing Avdiivka in mid-February.

According to military analysts, Moscow forces appear to be using this tactic again in offensive operations near Chasov Yar.

Russian attacks have forced Ukraine to make difficult decisions between providing air defense to protect populated areas in the rear and combat zones in the front, and Russia appears to be

Third, Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) passed a new mobilization law on April 11, which is an important step in resolving Ukraine’s personnel problems in the context of front-line protection units

Fourth, General Christopher Cavoli, Commander of the US European Command (EUCOM) and Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), said that EUCOM and NATO are strengthening their ability to respond to the `threat`.

Fifth, Ukraine and Latvia signed a bilateral security agreement on April 11, which provides Latvia’s long-term security commitment and support to Ukraine.

Friday, Russian authorities conducted an anti-terrorism operation and reportedly killed two terrorist suspects in the Kabardino-Balkaria Republic on April 11.

Seventh, Russian troops recently made confirmed advances near Kreminnaya, toward Chasov Yar west of Bakhmut and in the administrative border areas of Donetsk and Zaporizhia regions on April 11.
