Russia has “stopped pushing on so many areas” as it prepares for its new offensive, security and defence analyst Michael Clarke has said.

Speaking to Sky News, Clarke said both sides were waiting for a new offensive, with Russia building its defences and pulling back.

When it comes to weapons, he said the Ukrainians, according to NATO, had about 98% of the equipment that allies were due to supply.
