Ukraine Builds Defensive Lines to Slow Russian Advance #

Satellite imagery has revealed that Ukraine has constructed a 27-mile defensive line in southern Ukraine over the past two months. The fortifications, including ditches and concrete obstacles, are aimed at slowing down the advancing Russian forces. After suffering heavy casualties, Ukraine is facing exhaustion and shortages. In response, the government has approved a conscription plan and received military assistance from the US and European countries. However, analysts believe that Ukraine is unlikely to launch a major counteroffensive this year, instead focusing on reconstituting its forces. The construction of defensive lines is a crucial part of their strategy.
