what happened in the night

KBarely two and a half months after Russian troops invaded Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for even more pressure from the international community on Moscow.With each day of war, global threats increase, there is a new opportunity for Russia to cause instability in other parts of the world, not just here in Europe,” Zelenskyy said in his daily video address on Friday night. In the meantime, however, men and women are dying in Ukraine “who are doing their best so that everyone can live freely,” Zelenskyj said. “Therefore, much more pressure on Russia is needed.”

Selenskyj criticizes refusal to help

Despite the clear situation, there are countries in which sanctions against Moscow are suspended or aid to Ukraine is blocked, Zelenskyy criticized. However, he did not specifically name a country. It is now known that the Russian blockade of Ukrainian ports and the war as a whole caused a major food crisis. “And Russian officials are also openly threatening the world that there will be famine in dozens of countries.”

“In fact, today no one can predict how long this war will last,” Zelenskyy said. “But we are doing everything to quickly liberate our country. To do this, Ukraine needs the help of its partners, “European countries, countries of the free world”. So far, Russia has lost 200 military aircraft, more than 3,000 tanks and other armored vehicles and almost 27,000 soldiers.

The head of the Ukrainian military intelligence service, on the other hand, predicted in an extremely optimistic prognosis that the war would end in a Russian defeat by the end of the year. There will be a turnaround on the front lines by mid-August at the latest, Major General Kyrylo Budanov told British broadcaster Sky News. “The turning point will come in the second half of August.” By the end of the year, Ukraine will regain control of all its territories, including the Crimean peninsula. Budanov also expected major changes in the Kremlin. According to him, a coup against Russian President Vladimir Putin is already underway. He did not provide evidence to support his claims.

Kyiv presidential adviser: Russian military and economy are shaking

According to Ukrainian presidential adviser Oleksiy Arestovych, the Russian military and economy are on fragile ground. According to the Unian news agency, Arestovych said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s image of the “world’s second largest invincible army” had already been shown to be “false”. The reality of the past few weeks has shown a real picture of the Russian army’s combat capability: “It threatened to dismantle NATO, but has already failed in two villages in the Sumy region (northeast of Ukraine).

At the same time, Zelenskyy’s adviser predicted what he believed to be the impending collapse of the Russian economy this summer. “Any attempt to negotiate with the West will fail,” Arestovych said. This will be felt in July or August at the latest in the event of a possible mobilization. He wondered if the Russian economy could withstand this pressure. “There can be no healthy economy in a country where everything else is rotten.”

kyiv sees the “third phase” of the war

The Ukrainian leadership sees the beginning of the “third phase” of the Russian war of aggression and a protracted struggle associated with it. “The first phase” was an attempt to invade Ukraine “in a matter of days,” Viktor Andrusyw, an adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, said on television Saturday evening. In the second phase, the Ukrainian forces were to be surrounded and crushed in several boilers. “And they didn’t succeed either.”
