Zelensky rejected all peace talks!
Ukraine has eliminated the chances of a ceasefire or concessions to Moscow. On the other hand, Russia has geared up offensive attacks in the East Donbas region and also seized the gas supply to Finland. Russia took this step as the Polish President Andrzej Duda was about to speak with the Ukrainian Parliament on Sunday.
Russia has carried out a big attack in Luhansk, one of the two provinces in Donbas. This action is taken when Ukrainian fighters have shown resistance for many weeks in the Mariupol.
The separatists supported by Russia already controlled parts of the territory in Luhansk and neighboring Donetsk province before 24 February. It seems it is not enough for Moscow and it wants to take control of the Donbas the last territory that is held by Ukraine.
During the night speech, Volodymyr Zelensky-Ukrainian President said, “Donbas situation is quite difficult”. The cities of Sloviansk and Sievierodonetsk are under-attacked by the Russian troops but the Ukrainian army was resisting their attacks.
Podolyak, Ukraine’s lead negotiator told, “This war is not to stop after concessions. It will simply stop for some time. They will begin a series of more bloody attacks”.
Russian President Vladimir Putin got the limited victory in Mariupol after facing many setbacks during this war.
If Russia gets full control of Mariupol, it will lead Russia to connect land routes of the Crimen Peninsula, which Moscow confiscated in 2014.
Ukrainian troops in Luhansk and Donetsk said on Saturday they had resisted 9 attacks and knocked down 5 tanks and 10 armored vehicles as well in the past 24 hours.
Luhansk regional governor Serhiy Gaidai said a bridge between Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk on the Siverskiy Donets River is destroyed by the Russian Army. Now Russia is on the target of occupying Sieviedonetsk and Lysychansk after getting failures to get control of Kyiv since mid-April.
