Kyiv: One month has passed since Russia launched its war on Ukraine. Today marks the 30th day the attack has lasted. Russian forces are continuing their offensive in all cities, including the capital Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mariupol.
Russian forces are encircling Ukraine on three fronts. Russia has taken control of some Ukrainian cities.
But Russia has not yet captured major cities, including Kyiv and Kharkiv. The Ukrainian military has been challenging Russian forces. The Ukrainian army has recaptured part of Russia’s territory on the outskirts of Kyiv. Thus the Russian army has intensified their offensive.
Ukrainian military says Russia wants to end its war on Ukraine by May 9. The Ukrainian Armed Forces Civil Service’s intelligence service said that “Russian troops have been told to end the war by May 9.”
It is noteworthy that May 9 is celebrated in Russia as the day of the victory of the German Nazi forces. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military says the Ukrainian people are being forcibly taken to Russia.
“Thousands of Ukrainians have been forcibly taken to Russia,” he said. Some of them may be used as hostages. This could put pressure on Ukraine to surrender. It said 4 lakh people, including 84,000 children, had been taken to Russia against their will.
NATO forces will retaliate if they use chemical weapons in Ukraine. The nature of the retaliation will depend on the nature of the application, he said.
Speaking on the sidelines of the NATO summit, Ukrainian President Zelensky thanked EU leaders for their support of Ukraine and for working together to impose sanctions on Russia. But these measures have not been taken before.
Ukraine’s application to join the European Union should be considered expeditiously. Do not delay in this. Said it was an opportunity for us.
