Invading Russian forces have focused their main efforts on the encirclement of the Ukrainian capital city of Kyiv and the weakening of resistance in blocked off settlements, Ukraine’s General Staff wrote on Facebook on March 4.

“In the course of this task, Russian army groups have exhausted most of their operational reserves and have begun preparations for the transfer of additional forces and resources from the Southern and Eastern military districts,” the report reads.

The General Staff added that the second echelons and most of the operational reserves of the occupying groups have been put into operation.
