70 days of Russia-Ukraine war

Kyiv, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has completed 70 days and the war still does not seem to end. Russia is still firing missiles at Ukrainian cities, killing civilians. Russia recently practiced firing nuclear missiles, which increased the risk of a nuclear attack in Ukraine. However, Russia now says that its military will not attack Ukraine with nuclear weapons. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexei Zaitsev said Russia would not use nuclear weapons in Ukraine during the war. Earlier, Russian military officials and leaders had also been threatening nuclear attacks.

Meanwhile, on May 8, the leaders of the G-7 countries will hold a virtual meeting with Ukrainian President Voldimir Zelensky. These countries have helped Ukraine a lot in the war. Along with this, as a strategy to put pressure on Russia, many sanctions have been imposed on people close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is reported that the European Union is preparing to sanction Putin’s alleged female friend Alina Kabaeva and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill. Kirill blessed Putin for the war in Ukraine.

On the other hand, fighting has intensified in the eastern part of Ukraine. The Ukrainian army destroyed eight Russian tanks and five armored vehicles in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of the Donbass. At the same time, Ukraine claimed that Russia had fired more than two thousand missiles at it. Russia also destroyed a Ukrainian arms depot and a MiG-29 in the city of Kramatorsk in a retaliatory strike. Meanwhile, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said Belarus would not be part of Russia’s ongoing special military operation in Ukraine. Earlier, he had said that he was doing everything possible to stop the war.
