Today is the 35th day of WAR in Ukraine.
Yesterday morning just before the negotiations in Istanbul started, Russian cruise missile hit the administrative building of Mykolaiv oblast administration. Half of 9-floor building just disappeared in that explosion. At least 12 people died and more than 30 were injured, the rescuers still keep on trying to find survivors.
The negotiations yesterday delivered some progress.
The configuration of future peace agreement becomes more or less visible, even though several tough points will require further tough discussions.
At least, we have first visible step in the right direction.
It is not a reason to relax and celebrate; it is just the first step.
The war continues.
Air aid alerts all over Ukraine and air strikes from the territory of Belarus on several Ukrainian cities last night are the perfect confirmation of this.
Russian officials announced partial withdrawal of troops from Kyiv and Chernigiv directions. Reports of intelligence confirm it is already happening north to Kyiv.
Huge hit on morale of Russian soldiers.
That is not the sign of good will or humanity of invaders.
That is the result of effective defense arranged by Ukrainian forces on one side and huge losses of invaders on the other side, without any possibility for them to move further and arrange blockade of Kyiv.
Still it can be just a maneuver to regroup.
Most probably, the released forces will relocate to Donetsk-Luhansk direction and to Mariupol.
For sure some Russian forces will stay north to Kyiv and near Chernigiv to keep pressure on Ukrainian army in that directions.
So we stay focused.
Coming days and weeks will be crucial.
Putin will regroup his forces and will focus everything he has on Donetks-Luhans oblasts and on capturing Mariupol.
The results of war in that direction will have direct impact on the further process of negotiations.
Ukrainian forces will keep on standing on every frontline and will keep pushing invaders back whenever possible.
That is the strongest argument during negotiations.
The Ukrainian Army remains the main guarantor of Ukraine’s sovereignty.
No memorandums, no declarations, no press-conferences.
It is the power of Ukrainian Army, its high morale.
It is the unity of Ukrainian civil society in front of the enemy.
It is the support of every Ukrainian citizen, which together define our future.
We have siege Mariupol. We have bombed Mykolaiv. We have liberated Irpin.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
