The British Ministry of Defence on Saturday said the conflict between Russia and Ukraine has recently entered a stalemate, with heavy fighting still focused on three sectors, APA reports citing Teletrader.

The ministry warned there is a "realistic possibility" of local Russian advances around Bakhmut, which is one of the areas where the combat is concentrated. Additionally, according to the UK, Ukraine likely made small gains in the northeast, near Kremina, while both sides have massed significant forces in Zaporizhzhia, avoiding any "large-scale offensive efforts."

"Overall, the conflict is in a state of deadlock," the ministry concluded.
