Ukrainian forces are likely to conduct a counterattack northwest of Izyum to deter Russian troops from attacking Slovyansk, the U.S. think tank the Institute for the Study of War said in its June 18 update.

It said that Ukrainian troops would seek to disrupt Russian supply lines. As things stand, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have made little progress in this counteroffensive so far.

At the same time, Russian troops continue to regroup and transfer personnel within Zaporizhzhya Oblast to maintain defensive positions along the front line.
