The Ukrainian military is winning it’s territory back by margins as it reclaims towns and defensive positions on the eastern outskirts of Kyiv, amid the ongoing war with Russia.

No fewer than a hundred lives and multimillion-dollar investments, properties have been ravaged in the war initiated in February 2022 following Russian President Vladimir Putin’s order.

Naija News understands the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is based on disagreements on some political issues.

In its latest intelligence update on the happenings, Britain’s Ministry of Defence on Friday said Ukrainian counter-attacks, and Russian forces falling back on overextended supply lines, has allowed Ukraine to re-occupy towns and defensive positions up to 35 kilometres (21 miles) east of Kyiv.

The ministry explained further that Ukrainian forces are likely to continue to attempt to push Russian Forces back along the north-western axis from Kyiv towards Hostomel Airfield.

Though the Russian forces are still attempting to circumvent Mykolaiv as they look to drive west towards Odesa, their progress according to the Defence Ministry is being slowed by logistic issues and Ukrainian resistance.

Meanwhile, the President of the United States, Joe Biden has warned Russian President, Vladimir Putin against deploying chemical weapons in Ukraine.

Speaking after a NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, Biden warned that the organisation would “respond” if Putin used a chemical weapon in his war on Ukraine.

He said: “We will respond if he uses it. The nature of the response would depend on the nature of the use.”

The US president disclosed that NATO is actively monitoring events in Ukraine, warning that they are ready to hit back at Russia if it goes beyond its limits.

Biden said NATO has never been more united, against Russia, announcing that his presidency has pledged $2 billion in weapons to Ukraine.

He announced a new commitment to “more than $1 billion in humanitarian assistance,” as well as promising to welcome 100,000 of the nearly 3.7 million refugees fleeing the country.
