Russian troops are concentrating their efforts on trying to encircle Ukrainian forces in the Donbas, the UK’s Ministry of Defence said in its Defence Intelligence update for March 27.

According to the ministry, Russian troops appear to be focusing on encircling the Ukrainian forces that are position directly in front of non-government-controlled areas in the east of the country, advancing from Kharkiv in the north and Mariupol in the south.

It also noted that in northern Ukraine, the battlefield remains largely static, although local Ukrainian counterattacks are hindering Russia's attempts to reorganize its forces.
