The city is increasingly becoming a center of Russian aggression. A bomb blast near the northern city of Kharkiv on Sunday killed at least five people and injured 15 others, according to Ukrainian President Zhelensky. AFP reporters reported that several fires had spread to residential areas in central Kharkiv and that roofs had collapsed as a result of the attacks.

The new target of the Russian invaders is obvious Eastern Ukraine The rest of the country should be taken possession of separately. For this purpose, they recently left the north of the country. However, according to the Ukrainian Military Intelligence Service, this did not change the plans of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“The purpose of the military occupation remains the same: it is a move to destroy Ukraine’s constitution,” intelligence chief Kyrylo Budanov told Der Spiegel in an early statement on Sunday. As for Russia, Ukraine must “stop being a state.”
When asked why Russia decided to withdraw its troops from the area around the capital Kiev, Budanov said: “They simply did not withdraw – we expelled them from the Kiev region. We started with the withdrawal of the city of Irfin.
Budanov said he was not surprised that Russia’s plan to seize Kiev had failed. But he wonders about something else: “The Russian generals were so incompetent and indifferent that they approached such a big operation. If they really believed that they could do it in three days – our understanding is that they fully believed that they did it – the Russian leadership told themselves how talented their commanders were.” Have to ask.
Budanov reiterated the Ukrainian government’s demand for weapons from Germany: “We need artillery systems – the German army is particularly strong in them,” the Major General said. “Unfortunately we need tanks because we had armored vehicles with huge losses.”
The Ukrainian military wants to use weapons to liberate occupied territories, Budanov said. This includes the peninsula, which was annexed by Russia in 2014 Crimea. Budanov did not see the problem in the training of Ukrainian soldiers, for example in the Leopard battle tank: “We will learn it quickly. With all due respect, this is not superior mathematics.
In his speech on Monday night, President Zhelensky reiterated the importance of arms supply, especially in light of the continuing readiness of Russian troops to launch an offensive in the east of the country. He also announced strong opposition to the large-scale offensive in the east of the country. “We will not give up our territory,” he told CNN. The war in the Donbass area could affect the course of the whole war.
“Like the Russian troops Like Mariupol Destroying them, they want to destroy other cities and towns in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, “he said.”
It seems that the last Ukrainian soldiers were on campus there Steelworks Azovstal Sustained. According to new information from local authorities, there are a large number of civilians in addition to the Ukrainian troops. The people there had disappeared from the shelling during a week-long siege of the city by the Russian military, Mariupol patrol police chief Michael Vershin told local television Monday night.
“They don’t trust the Russians. They see what’s going on in the city, so they stay on site,” he said. The information could not be verified independently. Several thousand Ukrainian guards of the city are said to be lurking in large steel works, including underground facilities. Large areas of Mariupol are now under the control of the Russian military.
Ukrainian civilians fired Russian rockets and bombs on the besieged Mariupol on Sunday evening. Will be coming there too Tu-22M3 supersonic bomb For use. Prime Minister Denis Schmidt told the ABC that the city had not collapsed. Ukrainian soldiers will “fight to the end” in Mariupol. Foreign Minister Dmitry Giulba announced on CBS American broadcaster that his own troops were “basically surrounded” by Russian troops, who wanted to ground Mariupol. “The city is no more,” Guleba said.
Russia has previously threatened to destroy the remaining Ukrainian troops in Mariupol. The Ukrainians ignored the final warning to lay down their arms and surrender on Sunday afternoon.
About 100,000 residents are staying in Mariupol, Vershinin said. Russian troops had clear debris for food and removed the bodies and buried them in mass graves, he said. Before the war, Mariupol had a population of about 400,000. Thousands of civilians fear for their lives after a long siege and a series of shelling.
Meanwhile, President Zhelensky said his government would do everything possible to ensure that a similar incident did not happen again in the east of the country. At the same time, however, he criticized delays in the supply of arms to his country. Given the expected new offensive by Russian troops, this means that “Russia is allowed to kill Ukrainians,” Zhelensky said.
He did not mention the name of any country. However, there has been a recent controversy over the supply of heavy weapons in the Traffic Lighting Alliance in Germany. Greens and FDP politicians have accused President Olaf Scholes (SPD) of being reluctant. Military experts believe that Ukraine will need more heavy weapons to withstand attacks in the east of the country.
Ukraine is in constant contact with allies to ensure security in the east, Zelenskyy said. We are grateful to those who “help as much as they can.” “But those who possess the weapons and ammunition we need and stop their aid must know that the fate of this war depends on them. The fate of the people who can be saved.”
In some cases, a response has been awaited since the outbreak of the Russian occupation 53 days ago.
