On the ground, the Russian troops did not advance, although the tanks went back into action. There are still Ukrainian defense lines around Izium and Karkiv.
Intense shell attack continues.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has issued statements placing him at the center of the news.
On May 9, Victory Day, he declared that the war would not end.
Ukrainian sources and NATO nations believe that Vladimir Putin could use the opportunity to announce a general mobilization in the country.
Such a mobilization would be a clear recognition of the Russian military’s defeat in the war.
However, this mobilization could upset the balance of power on the ground and be decisively in favor of the Russian military.
Lavrov said that Adolf Hitler’s grandfather was Jewish, and in this sense Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky could be anti-Semitic and anti-Semitic.
The theory put forward by Lavrov is refuted by the majority of historians. Its primary purpose was to try to draw a parallel between Zelensky and Hitler. The Israeli government has strongly condemned Lavrov’s comments.
Getting around obstacles
Russia is seeking to use the former Soviet Union’s nine-nation military alliance to secure sanctions against the United States and its allies.
Member states of the organization include Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia and Armenia.
