MoD Defence bulletin on the situation in Ukraine 17th February 2023

On the 17 Feb 2022 Defence Intelligence released an update assessing that President Putin was preparing a large scale invasion of Ukraine. On the 24 Feb he launched the invasion almost exactly as predicted. Up to 190k Russian troops entered Ukraine from the north, east and south.

But the operation didn’t go to plan. 358 days after Russia’s D-Day they continue a grinding offensive in the Donbas. But at D+358 they’re not where they likely hoped to be in this sector by D+10. The campaign has likely failed to meet any of its operational & strategic objectives.

The map below shows the latest information on Russian attacks and troop movements based on an MoD Intelligence assessment update on the situation in Ukraine dated 17 February 2023. More about the UK government's response can be found at: πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦ #StandWithUkraine πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦
