As the second month of war in the Ukrainian region begins in its territory, hope is in order. Russia, which had attacked on six fronts in the first weeks, decided to focus on the Donbass, claiming that it had already reached 93% of its targets in eastern Ukraine.
Is the strategic withdrawal of the Russian army from Donbass the first acknowledgment of weakness? Moscow’s forces have suffered a number of setbacks in recent days, especially around Donetsk and Luhansk, two major cities in the Donbass. Employees of the Ukrainian military say they have “caused significant casualties to Russian invaders,” the last bulletin of which was released early Saturday morning. It said three planes had been shot down on the Russian side, eight tanks destroyed and about 170 soldiers killed.
A counter-attack well for the Ukrainian army is reported to be underway, and so is Kersan at the mouth of the Dnieper, the gateway to the Black Sea, not far from Odessa. In this regard, a senior U.S. defense official said Friday evening that the city of Kherson “does not appear to be as firmly under Russian control as it once was.”
The warships were intercepted by Russian forces
However, the slogans of success that are sometimes published on social networks such as the Incentive announced by Western countries can have serious consequences. This Saturday, Deputy Secretary of Defense Hannah Malier announced that “involuntary disclosure of information regarding the supply of equipment or weapons has led to interceptions by Russian forces.”
The latest announcement, dated Friday, is the delivery of 1500 anti-aircraft missiles “Strela” and 100 MG3 machine guns by Germany. However, no information has been released about the delivery method and the cities involved in these deliveries.
136 children were killed
As for the victims, the Attorney General’s Office confirmed that Russian attacks on Ukrainian soil had killed at least 136 children and injured 199 of them. .
That being said, all of these claims should be taken with caution because each side is engaged in a fierce battle for information, with great difficulty in verifying what is happening on the ground from an independent source. One month after the start of the Russian invasion.
