russians. they are the ones towards lobbyist and other key city of little much region. however, one needs to end. there are several major settlements in the don't much region yet under ukrainian control. so even the fall of the month does not mean that ukrainian defense will be collapsing by all accounts. ukrainian force is heavily treated from among organized bait. and they are still holding the eastern part of the city and the similar they have to listen to situation. derek is getting increasingly critical. so all you know, if russia succeeds, taking the cord territory of blue house and the ukraine that might unable russian president plug me, put him to claim some kind of a big story. anyways, the war has started by russia recognizing the independence of the so good, don't ask and to ask republics. so in the long story, short taking dance, going to have with unable russia to basically declare victory both at home and
