On a secret visit to Luhansk .. Zelensky is under fire



While on a secret visit to the Lugansk province, the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, came under fire.

The deputy of the party "servant of the people," Marianna Bezuglaya, the president's party, revealed that Zelensky was among the elements of the Ukrainian army on a secret visit not so long ago when the shooting began.

She added that the president arrived secretly to support the army, see everything with his own eyes, and understand the situation there, as she put it.

The MP also posted on her Facebook account a photo of the president among the army members.

While it is impossible to determine where the photo published by the Ukrainian deputy to her president was taken,

Separatists talk about liberating the city.

Ramzan Kadyrov, the president of the Russian Chechen Republic, said on Monday morning that his soldiers had started to "liberate" the city of Zolote in the breakaway Lugansk Republic. This is an interesting fact.

Kadyrov said that in this way, the advance to Lysychansk, the only city in the separatist republic under the control of Ukrainian troops, would be ensured.

"Various Nazi forces are standing against us in this region, including Polish mercenaries," he said on his Telegram channel.

In the last few weeks, most of the fighting has been in and around Severodonetsk, a key city in the Donbas region. If Severodonetsk falls, Russia will be able to take control of the whole Donetsk region.

Russia aims to control the entire Donbas Basin (including Lugansk and Donetsk), which was partially controlled by pro-Moscow separatists in 2014, to open a land corridor connecting the East with the Crimean peninsula, which it annexed the same year.
