Ukraine withdraws from Donetsk villages, citing lack of ammunition – POLITICO

“We are still waiting for the promised supplies to Ukraine,” Zelensky said in a statement on Sunday, adding that kyiv urgently needed the promised weapons to be able to “change the situation on the battlefield.”

The United States finally approved an additional $61 billion aid package for kyiv last week. But questions were raised over whether that would be enough to restore momentum in Ukraine’s favor, after six months of delays that saw kyiv’s forces suffer serious deficits while Russia, bolstered by supplies from its allies, including Iran and North Korea, made territorial gains.

Ukraine also needs stronger political support from its Western allies, Zelenskyy said, calling for a strong signal that kyiv belongs to the EU and NATO at the alliance summit military in Washington this summer. “The alliance should not be afraid of its own strength or turn away from its own foundations: every country that shares common values ​​​​and is ready to defend them deserves an invitation to join it,” Zelenskyy said.

In his statement, Syrskyi said the situation had worsened for Ukrainian troops over the past week, as Russia tried to take the strategic initiative and break through the front line. Moscow plans to take full control of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and has concentrated its attacks near Avdiivka, captured by Vladimir Putin’s forces in February, and Chasiv Yar.

In southern Ukraine, Russian forces have intensified their attacks around Robotyne and Verbove, which kyiv recaptured from the invaders in 2023. But Ukrainian troops managed to make some gains on the battlefield, advancing near the village of Veletens’ke and taking control of the island of Nestryha. on the Dnieper River in the Kherson region.
