Today on Eastern Express, we looked at the prospects of the war in Ukraine now that the Ukrainian army has liberated Kherson. President Zelenskyy was on site in the regional capital to celebrate this victory alongside his countrymen.
It is however crucial not to feel overly optimistic just yet since the war continues to make lives miserable for the resilient Ukrainians.
For this reason the Ukrainian president told world leaders at the G20 summit in Bali that the time to end Russia’s war should be “now”, and called for extending a grain-export deal which is due to expire shortly. The importance of maintaining pressure on the Moscow regime was stressed numerous times.
He also said Ukraine will not allow Russian troops to regroup after their withdrawal from the southern strategic city of Kherson, and said there would be more fighting until Ukraine reclaims control of all of its occupied territory.
The liberation of Kherson over the weekend was one of Ukraine’s biggest successes in nearly nine months since the start of the Russian invasion.
To shed more light on the issue, we were joined by Agaton Koziński, a columnist and political commentator.
