The parts of the Donbas where Russian-backed forces have seized control are splitting further from Ukraine and drawing closer to Russia.

Ukraine cut off the electrical supply of the Kremlin-backed separatists of Luhansk Oblast on April 25, and Russia immediately said it would step in to supply power, continuing in this way its gradual economic absorption of Ukraine’s territory.
Along with economic conflict, hostilities intensified, with yet more soldiers joining the toll of more than 10,000 deaths from Russia’s war on Ukraine.

And the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the only intergovernmental body successfully operating on the both sides of the front line, suffered its first fatality in the three years of its work in Ukraine. One OSCE monitor was killed and two were wounded after their patrol car hit a mine in the Russian-occupied part of Luhansk Oblast.
