Zelensky assures that his army will take over other Donbass cities “in the coming week”
The loss of Lyman, a strategic rail hub in the region, is a major setback for Moscow, which announced the annexation of Donetsk on Friday and from three other Ukrainian regions to Russia.
“They have already started attacking each other: they are looking for culprits, accusing generals of having failed…”, has Mr. Zelensky said of Russian government officials. “This is the first alarm signal that should be heard at all levels of the Russian government.”
Then he launched, speaking of Russian President Vladimir Putin: “As long as all of you don't you have not solved the problem of who started it all, who started this senseless war against Ukraine, you will be killed one by one, becoming scapegoats, because you do not admit that this war is a historic mistake for Russia”.
