TheVoiceOfJoyce Day 258, fighting continues in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and in the South. Kherson is not experiencing fierce fighting yet. The new Russian recruits are being destroyed by the Ukrainian army and 130 soldiers out 500+ remained and retreated to Russian Territory after heavy casualties in Luhansk. Conscripts were left on the battlefield with no combat readiness. Previous wars haunt this battlefield, with echoes of Hitler’ s and Stalin’s treatment of people. In Iran, schisms exist among the Clerics and they’re critical of their Country’s alignment with Russia in this unjust war. The G 20 meets next week and the cloud of War hangs over it, with possibly both Zelensky and Putin attending virtually. Zelensky has stated there will not be Peace talks until Russia evacuates all lands occupied, including Crimea. Putin thought this War would end in days, miscalculating the Ukrainian National spirit. They’re not giving up and they’re getting the weapons needed for an effective counteroffensive.

The secretary of Ukraine’s security council said on Tuesday the “main condition” for the resumption of negotiations with Russia would be the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity. Oleksiy Danilov said that Ukraine also needed the “guarantee” of modern air defences, aircraft, tanks and long-range missiles.

Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has claimed his forces are gradually pushing back Russian troops in some parts of the east and south. “We are gradually moving forward,” he said in his latest Monday evening address. Zelenskiy added that Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region remains the centre of Ukraine’s bloodiest battles, claiming Russians “die by the hundreds every day”.
