NATO claims – war will last for many years, Russia said – will get big success soon

Russia-Ukraine War News Update: Russia’s attacks on Ukraine have been going on for three and a half months. Russian troops are attacking almost all cities of Ukraine anew. Meanwhile, the American allied organization NATO (NATO) has claimed that the war can go on for many years. Ukraine will soon free the Donbass from Russian occupation. At the same time, Russia has claimed that the special military operation in the eastern region is proceeding according to plan. Big success will come soon. The whole Donbass would be under his control.

German newspaper Bild am Jontag quoted NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg as saying that the attacks of Ukrainian troops have increased due to the modern weapons being received from the US and European countries. Soon they will be able to free the Donbass from Russian occupation on the Eastern Front. Stoltenberg said, the whole world, and especially Europe, has to bear in mind that this war can go on for many years. Ukraine has to win, not only with military aid, but also on the front of rising energy and food prices.

Along with this, let us know the big updates of Russia and Ukraine war…

Ukrainian troops on Sunday retaliated with Russian attacks on villages near the eastern city of Severodonetsk. According to a statement issued by the Ukrainian army, the army foiled a Russian attack in the Shakivka area. Because of this the Russian army had to retreat and they are regrouping.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Sunday – the Ukrainian army will not allow the southern part of the country to be under Russian occupation. Zelensky’s statement came after visiting the southern city of Mykolaiv on Saturday. He visited the country’s southern city of Mykolaiv for the first time since the start of the war.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Sunday that the Russo-Ukraine war could take years. He also said that the supply of modern weapons to Ukrainian troops would increase the chances of freeing the Donbass region from Russian occupation.

According to Stoltenberg’s statement last week, an aid package for Ukraine is expected to be agreed at the NATO summit in Madrid later this month. With this package, Ukraine will get NATO standard weapons instead of the old Soviet-era weapons.

The news agency Reuters quoted a Ukrainian official as saying that Russia is trying to make Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, a frontline city. The agency has told this by quoting Vadim Denisenko, adviser to the Interior Minister of Ukraine.

The statement comes after Amnesty International this week accused Russia of war crimes in Ukraine. It accused Russia of using several banned cluster bombs in Kharkiv, in which hundreds of civilians were killed.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who visited Kyiv, said Britain understood that Ukraine needed long-term support. He encouraged the people of Ukraine, saying that they should not get tired, because the war is still going on. Britain will give Ukrainian soldiers training, arms, ammunition faster.

Analysts at the Institute for the Study of War, a Washington-based think-tank, have expressed fears that the Russian military will gain full control of Severodonsk, located on the banks of the Seversky River, in the coming days. However, for this Russia will have to exert full force in a very small area.

A spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry said the city of Mityolkin, southeast of Severodonsk, is completely under Russian military control. The Ukrainian army has also confirmed this success of Russia.

Luhansk Governor Serhi Gaidai rejected the claim of Russian occupation of Severodonsk, saying Ukrainian forces are constantly responding to Russia. At the same time, Russia has caused huge destruction due to missile attacks in Lysichansk, located on the other end of Seversky.
