Vladimir Putin is advocating for an escalation of military actions in Ukraine, in an effort to bolster his prospects in the upcoming Russian presidential election, according to reports.

The Institute for the Study of War think tank said Putin's directive is part of his strategy to seize and maintain the initiative before the March 2024 Russian presidential elections.

Putin reportedly wants the invasion of Ukraine to serve as the focal point of his election campaign, as reported by The Telegraph.

Despite adverse weather conditions, Putin's forces have increased their efforts in multiple regions in Ukraine, successfully gaining control along the Kharkiv-Luhansk Oblast border, near Bakhmut, and the Avdiivka-Donetsk City axis, according to Ukrainian officials and military statements cited by the think tank.

The motive behind Putin's recent actions appears to be to portray Russia as a dominant force in Ukraine as the elections draw closer.
