In its latest intelligence update on Sunday, the United Kingdom's Defense Ministry said Russian forces in Ukraine were directing supplies provided by its ally Belarus toward the country's eastern region, where attacks have been intensifying, APA reports citing CNN.

"Russian forces continue to redeploy combat and support equipment from Belarus towards eastern Ukraine. This includes locations close to Kharkiv and Severdonetsk," said the intelligence report. "Russian artillery continues to strike Ukrainian positions throughout the east of the country where Russia plans to renew its offensive activity."

"Though Russia's operational focus has shifted to eastern Ukraine, Russia's ultimate objective remains the same," it added. "It is committed to compelling Ukraine to abandon its Euro-Atlantic orientation and asserting its own regional dominance."
