Ukrainian forces have been searching for potential weaknesses in Russia’s defense along the front lines in the Donetsk region. In an effort to end the ongoing conflict, the soldiers are digging trenches and studying gaps in the separation line between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed separatists.

The Ukrainian forces’ efforts to find potential weak spots in Russia’s defense could prove to be a key strategy in ending the fighting.
