‘Russia fighting for historical land’
“The danger is increasing every day,” Putin said while inspecting the march of soldiers. Russia has already acted on the attack. It was a binding, timely and only corrective decision. He described the ongoing conflict for the Donbass as a fight on Russia’s “historic land”. After an initial failure to capture the whole of Ukraine and its capital, Russia has turned its attention to the Donbass. But even in that area progress is a bit slow.
Putin did not declare victory in speech
Many analysts have previously speculated that Putin may announce some limited victory in his speech, especially in Mariupol. It is believed that Putin wants to get out of the state of war, due to which Western countries have imposed sanctions on Russia and the situation has become worrying about its resources. According to critics, the speech eschewed some of the uncomfortable realities that Putin is facing.
Zelensky said – Ukraine will soon celebrate two Victory Days
Even today, when Putin paid tribute to his departed soldiers on the occasion of Victory Day in Moscow, the sound of sirens once again reverberated in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv. But Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his Victory Day address that his country would eventually defeat Russia. He said in a video, ‘Very soon there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine. We never fought against anyone. We always fight for ourselves. We are fighting for the freedom of our children and hence we will win.
