Russian ground forces have pushed deep into Ukraine from the north, east and south, but have faced resistance from Ukrainian troops.

Moscow’s defense ministry said in a statement on Saturday that Russian forces have been ordered to step up their offensive in Ukraine “from all directions” after Kiev refused to hold talks in Belarus.

“After the Ukrainian side rejected the negotiation process, today all units were ordered to develop an advance from all directions in accordance with the plans for the operation,” Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

Russian ground forces have pushed deep into Ukraine from the north, east and south, but have faced resistance from Ukrainian troops, whose intensity has taken Moscow by surprise, according to Western sources.

“Russia has made some progress in its operations. But Ukraine keeps control of major cities,” said a Western official, who asked not to be named.

The official said Ukraine’s military was offering “strong resistance” in major cities, expressing fears over a possible “indiscriminate” use of violence by Russia if the deadline for the invasion was not met.

Russia has so far not been able to completely take any Ukrainian city, although its forces are affecting Kiev as well as Kharkiv, which is located close to the Russian border.

Russia claims control of Crimea’s southern urban centers in the north of the Ukrainian peninsula, including Melitopol and Kherson, but this has not been confirmed by Western officials.

A senior US defense official told reporters on Friday that the pace of Russian progress, especially around Kiev, has slowed in the past 24 hours.
