This shows that Putin’s Kremlin has no intention of putting an end to the war. Moscow’s offensive may hit the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and perhaps Zaporizhzhia. Russian troops they will remain on defense in the Kherson regions and in the Crimea”.
According to the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Oleksiy Danilov, in the end Ukraine, despite the resistance of several Western countries, will receive the American F-16 fighter planes. “It’s only a matter of time,” he said in an interview with CNN. “They will definitely come.
