The Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, does not seem to have succeeded in meeting his intentions to the extent to which he had expected. As of now, Ukraine has developed a serious plan for a counter-offensive, but so far things haven't gone well for them.
Despite all this, Zelensky does not want to create chaos and panic around everything, and he still has an air of optimism about everything. "Some people believe that this is a Hollywood movie and now they expect results. That's not the case," Zelensky said.
According to Zelensky, the most valuable thing in the whole story is the life of a person. It was the Ukrainian president who made it clear from the very beginning of the war that human lives are of utmost importance. For Zelensky, one of the biggest problems is that a large part of the territory is mined, and as a result, it is very hard to advance in these conditions.
"Whatever some want, including attempts to pressure us, with due respect, we will advance on the battlefield as we think is best," he continued.
The Ukrainian army confirmed a few days ago that it was able to recapture Pyatikhatky from the Russians.
It appears that the lines are still the same, and there was no further progress made. There are many who believe that this is a wake-up call, but there are also many who believe that Ukrainians will be able to overcome this.
"They had partial success during the past day, they consolidated on the borders they reached and leveled the frontline," said Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar. During the Ukrainians' fight against Russia, the West provided a great deal of support to the Ukrainian people.
Since the Russians could create even bigger problems in the future, the European Union and the world realize that it is necessary to provide assistance to the Ukrainian people. There are still no indications that this conflict is going to end anytime soon. The two sides hold firm to their positions, and they do not intend to give up on either side.
