An analysis of information from the battlefield makes it possible to refute the statements of “television” generals who promise a counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and “victory”, Lt. Col. Davis concludes. Western countries have also begun to understand this, which at the latest meetings of the G7 and NATO no longer promise Kyiv any significant assistance.
RIA Novosti recalls that Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Among its goals was the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, the protection of the civilian population of Donbass from constant artillery, mortar and rocket attacks and destruction by Kyiv. The Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the Russian army has already completed the main tasks of the first stage – it has significantly reduced the combat potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The territory of the Luhansk People’s Republic has been completely liberated from Ukrainian armed formations.
In the Donetsk People’s Republic, the strategically important regional center south of Donetsk – Volnovakha, the largest port city on the coast of the Sea of Azov, Mariupol, and Svyatogorsk, which houses an Orthodox monastery, have been liberated.
