Volodimir Zelensky assured this Sunday that Russian troops are suffering heavy losses in the continuous and “fierce” attacks in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, but despite this “it continues to lead its mobilized soldiers and mercenaries to death.”

“Very fierce Russian attacks continue in the Donetsk region . The enemy is taking heavy losses there.”, asserted the Ukrainian president in his usual nightly speech.

Likewise, the president affirmed that the invading troops are preparing new assaults on the Ukrainian energy infrastructure: “ Russia is concentrating forces and means for a possible repetition of the massive attacks against our infrastructure, energy in the first place.”

Given this scenario, Zelensky maintained that the Ukrainian forces are preparing “to respond” to the Russian attacks.

During his speech broadcast on social networks, the Ukrainian president commented that the Vladimir Putin's troops used Iranian attack drones again this Sunday, and although some have been shot down, “there are also successes.”

The use of Iranian drones was alluded to today precisely in the conversation held by the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, with the Ukrainian president, who has stated that the whole world needs to know that the Iranian regime is helping Russia to prolong the war.

“If it weren't for the supply Iranian weapons to the aggressor, now we would be closer to peace”, he lashed out.

Zelensky indicated that “not a single Kalibr aircraft carrier” has entered into combat in the Sea Black, which is a “significant result” of the Ukrainian forces.

“The smaller the Russian Black Sea fleet, the safer it is in the Black Sea. And there will definitely be a day when we will announce that we have provided Ukraine with full protection against the Russian threat, both at sea and in the sky. I am sure of that,” he stressed.

Moscow troops increased attacks in eastern Ukraine, in an attempt to retake the initiative on a front that has been stabilized for months, as tension grows in the south due to the approach of Ukrainian troops to Kherson.

The towns of Bajmut and Soledar continue to be the hottest spots on the eastern front, where violent fighting has been taking place for weeks, according to sources from both warring parties.

Meanwhile, on the front south, the city of Kherson, the only regional capital conquered by the Russians since last February, was left without power and water today.

“In the city ​​and some other districts there is no electricity or water. The situation is due to damage to electrical networks,” an emergency source told the TASS agency.

For his part, the president of the United States, Joe Biden and the German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, held a telephone conversation this Sunday in which they agreed to describe recent Russian nuclear threats as “irresponsible”. “Leaders have agreed that Russia's recent nuclear threats are irresponsible,” the White House said in an official statement.
