At a time when the war in Ukraine seems essentially stagnant in terms of the current positions of both sides, Russia recently scored what could be its first victory since the summer of 2022, albeit more symbolically than strategically. Soledar, ten kilometers north of Bakhmut, the conquest of which was the main goal of the Russians.
