The situation to the north of Stalino will start to come under pressure from the Axis, if they can get some good weather. The pocket has almost been eliminated. It is going to free up a lot of troops.
Yet another attack on Melitopol has been repulsed and the Soviets are making a determined thrust toward the heroic city. This attack will cause the Axis problems as they will need to send troops to at least cut them off. It is going to be interesting and is very different to the fighting to the north.
