The Russian armed forces have about seven kilometers left to cut off the main supply route of the Ukrainian armed forces in Donbas. This was reported by Bild analyst Julian Röpcke. According to the publication, Russian units are moving towards the T0504 highway, which is called the "road of life" in Ukraine.

It serves as the main supply route for the Ukrainian armed forces in the Chasov Yar area. After losing control of T0504, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will have alternative supply routes. However, Röpcke particularly emphasizes that these routes are not as convenient as this one.

It was previously reported that fierce battles are taking place around Chasov Yar in the DPR for dominant heights and fortifications. Intense hostilities are particularly noted near the Kanal microdistrict, on the territory of the Chasov Yar repair factory, as well as north and southeast of the city.

At the same time, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have acknowledged that Russian units have approached the canal, which is the main line of Ukrainian defense in Chasov Yar.

Zelensky: Russia does not genuinely want peace

Ukraine will present Russia with concrete measures to achieve a peaceful resolution of the conflict in Ukraine at the second peace summit, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced today at the Global Peace Conference on Ukraine in Switzerland.

Speaking at the plenary session of the summit, Zelensky told the attendees that Russia is not interested in peace and that the summit participants should decide together how to achieve peace "in a truly lasting way" and in accordance with the UN Charter, reports Kyiv Independent.

"When the action plan is on the table, agreed upon by all and transparent to all, it will then be presented to the representatives of Russia, so that at the second peace summit we can mark the real end of the war," Zelensky said.

More than 100 representatives of countries and international organizations are attending the peace summit held in the city of Bürgenstock near Lucerne. Official Kyiv hopes to develop a new joint peace plan based on President Zelensky's 10-step peace proposal.

"Our most important goals this weekend are to inspire a process that will lead to a framework for a comprehensive, just, and lasting peace for Ukraine based on international law and the UN Charter," said Swiss President Viola Amherd, emphasizing that a peace process that does not include Russia is "impossible."
