In other news, Russia appears to be looking to bolster the combat strength and weapons supplies of its forces ahead of an expected new large-scale offensive in mid-May, early June.

Two people were killed and six more were injured on Wednesday following Russian shelling of the city of Hirnyk, according to the head of Donetsk’s regional state administration.
