Britain's Ministry of Defence says Russia has lost about a third of its ground combat force since the war began in Ukraine at the end of February.

The Russian invasion has been hampered by stiff Ukrainian resistance and logistical issues.

Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg also said Russia's war in Ukraine is not going to plan and that its attempt to capture the eastern Donbas region has "stalled".

"They failed to take Kyiv, they are pulling back from around Kharkiv, their major offensive in Donbas has stalled. Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives," he said.

Stoltenberg added that Ukraine could win the conflict.
