The U.K. Defense Ministry said on Aug. 19 in its intelligence update that Russian troops continue to conduct local raids and probing attacks against Ukrainian forces near Kharkiv to force Ukraine to maintain significant forces in the area and to prevent them from being employed as a counter-attack force elsewhere.

Multiple rocket launchers and generally inaccurate area weapons have caused devastation across large parts of the city, the ministry said.
