Ukraine’s military has just given its latest update on the Russian invasion, saying that “the enemy is continuing an offensive operation, but the pace of advance of its troops has slowed significantly”.

On Day 13 of the Russian assault, the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces said that – as of 06:00 local time (04:00 GMT) on 8 March – Ukrainian troops were continuing to defend in the southern, eastern and northern sectors. The capital Kyiv as well as the northern city of Chernihiv were still in Ukrainian hands.

It added that the country’s air defences were successfully repulsing missile and air strikes.

“The occupiers are demoralised, and are increasingly resorting to looting and violating the rules of international humanitarian law on military conflict.”

The Ukrainian military also claimed that Russia was now resorting to psychological warfare, saying that groups of Russian forces were created to “conduct propaganda work” in occupied territories to influence local residents.

The BBC cannot independently verify many of these claims.
