“But there will be no lull. Preparations are underway for the next series… After all, Ukraine must be free. Everything.”
Currently, Ukraine is preparing for new victories against Russia, as it has been reported that soldiers are on the eastern bank of the Askil River, which is an important development as it threatens the Russian occupation of Donbass.

Britain said the Russian military had expanded its strikes on civilian areas as it continued to lose territory in Ukraine, and said it was likely to continue to strike new locations.
