The top US defense think tank says Russian forces did not secure any major breakthroughs in their offensive in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday, APA reports citing BBC.

Moscow secured minor gains, taking parts of the key frontline towns of Rubizhne and Popasna, the Institute for the Study of War reports.

But Russian forces "have not achieved any major breakthroughs, nor have they demonstrated any new capability to conduct multiple successful, simultaneous advances", it says.

Moscow announced plans for a 9 May Victory Day parade in Mariupol - indicating Russian forces will declare victory in the city by that date at the latest, the think tank says.
