Russia’s military is “repositioning” to focus its firepower on attempting to conquer a swath of eastern Ukraine after failing to control the whole country, a senior US official said Monday.

“Russia is repositioning its forces to concentrate its offensive operations in Eastern and parts of southern Ukraine,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters. “Russia has tried to subjugate the whole of Ukraine and it has failed. Now it will attempt to bring parts of the country under its rule.”
