Thousands of people have been killed in ukraine’s russia war
In the past year, the fighting between Russia and Ukraine has been continuing for three months, and there are still no signs of an end in sight. While the UN and the Ukrainian government claim that thousands of people have been killed in the conflict, it is impossible to confirm the numbers unless independent observers are able to confirm them. Many of these reports are delayed or not confirmed by the Russian government, and the official tally may be much higher than that.
A UN report from April 2017 estimated that over ten Million Civilians have been displaced because of the conflict. The UN said more than 1,800 people have died as a result of the conflict. It’s difficult to verify these numbers, as it is impossible to find every individual victim. However, there is no reason to believe that the war is over, and a report from the UN Human Rights Council could provide important insights into the situation in Ukraine.
Russian forces are preparing for a “prolonged” conflict in ukraine
A senior U.S. intelligence official has warned that the Ukraine-Russia conflict is poised to escalate. He noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intentions may go beyond regaining the Donbas region. These plans probably include consolidating a land bridge linking Russia and Crimea. The conflict will reverberate throughout Eastern Europe and may even spill into Europe. The threat of escalation is a major reason why Ukraine has a high risk of escalation.
Ukrainian officials report increasing confidence that the Kremlin will announce the mobilization process on May 9. Kyrylo Budanov, the head of Ukraine’s Main Military Intelligence Directorate, said on May 2 that the Kremlin has begun the process of covert mobilization. However, there is no independent confirmation of this claim. However, the ISW has gathered and analyzed information on several sources that indicate that Russian forces are preparing for a “prolonged” conflict in Ukraine.
Ukraine has taken back half of Sievierodonetsk
The latest battle in eastern Ukraine is over the key industrial city of Sievierodonetsk. Heavy fighting continues in this key city, and both sides are claiming huge casualties. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says Kyiv still has the chance of regaining control. But he has warned Russia against breaking through in eastern Donbas.
A senior Ukrainian official has declared that his country’s forces have taken back half of the strategically important city of Sievierodonetsk. Regional governor Sergiy Gaiday has confirmed the Ukrainian gains, but he added that they are close to being driven out of the city. Meanwhile, heavy fighting is continuing in eastern Ukraine, and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin warned against supplying Ukraine with long-range missiles. Britain, however, has vowed to mirror the United States in stepping up its military operations.
The city remains under Russian occupation despite Ukraine’s efforts to retake the city. At least 12,000 civilians remain in Sievierodonetsk, with some fighting raging on the streets. However, there are still supplies circulating through some parts of the city, and some of the rails still function. As the fighting continues in the city, some of the city’s supply routes will remain functional, but the population will be displaced until the Russian army gives up.
Separatist president denis Pushilin says crimes committed by separatists were “monstrous”
The Russian Foreign Minister Denis Pushilin has made an unprecedented claim about the Donbass conflict, saying that the crimes committed by the separatists were “monstrous.” In a lengthy Interview with India Today, the former Chechen leader denied that Russia had imposed any conditions on the occupation of the Donbass region. However, he did explain that Russia’s annexation of the occupied regions of Crimea and Luhansk People’s Republic was “soft,” despite the fact that the two territories were in Russia until 1953.
The Russian government has denied the claims of Ukraine’s annexation of the Donetsk People’s Republic, which was seized in 2014. The Donetsk People’s Republic is now claiming that the two sides are pursuing a peaceful settlement. The conflict is a result of Russian military and separatist infighting, according to Ukrainian officials. However, it is not clear whether this means the end of the conflict.
