The trend of the day

Two days before the summit of European Union leaders called to decide on granting Ukraine the status of candidate country for the European club, the situation is tense on the ground for kyiv. In eastern Ukraine, the Russians “fully control” the village of Tochkivka on the front line, a few kilometers from Severodonetsk and Lyssytchansk where the fighting is raging.

This region is almost completely controlled by forces from Moscow. Only the pocket of Ukrainian resistance around Lyssytchansk and Severodonetsk still escapes the control of the Russian army. Putin’s forces are advancing city by city, like a steamroller. And the situation is likely to get worse.

Several cities in Donbass still under the control of kyiv are preparing for a new advance by Russian troops, such as Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, east of Severodonetsk. But hope remains: Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiï Reznikov has announced the receipt of German Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled artillery guns, after weeks of negotiations. A new firepower, with which kyiv hopes to turn the tide.
