Three months after the start of Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expects more difficult weeks for his country. Again he demands more weapons from the West so that Ukraine can defend itself.
Since the beginning of the war, the United Nations has registered more than 6.5 million people who have fled Ukraine – most of them to Poland. At least 3,930 civilian deaths have been documented, and the number of injuries confirmed by the UN is 4,532. The British secret service estimates that Russian casualties in Ukraine are already as high as those of the Soviets in Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, peace negotiations are on hold. “The coming weeks of war will be difficult,” Zelensky said in his evening video address on Monday. “Nevertheless, we have no alternative but to fight. Fight and win.”
