Summary

NATO says it is a purely defensive alliance.While Moscow lost ground on the diplomatic front, Russian forces also failed to make territorial gains in eastern Ukraine.Ukraine said it held off Russian offensives Sunday in the east, and Western military officials said the campaign Moscow launched there after its forces failed to seize the capital of Kyiv has slowed to a snail’s pace.Ukraine, meanwhile, celebrated a morale-boosting victory in the Eurovision Song Contest. Russian troops also tried to advance near the eastern city of Izyum, but Ukrainian forces stopped them, the governor of Ukraine’s Kharkiv region, Oleh Sinegubov, reported.The Ukrainian claims could not be independently verified, but Western officials also painted a somber picture for Russia.Britain’s Defense Ministry said in its daily intelligence update Sunday that the Russian army had lost up to one-third of the combat strength it committed to Ukraine in late February and was failing to gain any substantial territory.
