Vladimir Putin, who considers the revolution as a coup d'état orchestrated in the West to weaken Russia, subsequently annexed Crimea and orchestrated a separatist war in eastern Ukraine. Eight years later, he launched a full-scale invasion of the country in February 2022.
Mr. Zelensky therefore warned his Western allies against any temptation to make “compromises” with Russia: if “the civilized world begins (…) to make concessions to tyrants, we will all lose.”
– Battle of the Dnieper –
The Russian army continues its strikes on Ukraine.
Two civilians were killed in a nighttime drone and missile attack on a hospital and a mining building in the east, Ukrainian authorities announced on Tuesday.
For its part, the Ukrainian army is trying to gain ground on the left bank of the Dnieper River, an area occupied by the Russians in the southern region of Kherson.
It has conquered positions there and has been expanding them since October. But Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu assured that “all Ukrainian landing operations” had failed.
On Sunday, Ukraine claimed to have pushed the Russian army back several kilometers in this area, first success after months of unsuccessful counter-offensive.
And Mr. Shoigu is also contradicted by well-informed specialized pro-Kremlin Russian bloggers.
The Telegram account Rybar wrote on Tuesday to its 1.2 million subscribers that the Ukrainian forces, on the left bank of the Dnieper, had taken an additional forest massif near Krynky, their main bridgehead , and always managed to get supplies. It also reports operations further west, near Gola Prystan.
