Russia-Ukraine War: The ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia has passed a long gap. In this war that has been going on for more than six months, Ukraine has given a tough fight to Russia and has captured many areas including Kharkiv occupied by Russian troops. But these parts are badly devastated. After this defeat, Russia can now become more aggressive.

He will no longer see any kind of logic. It has faced setbacks in the past few days in the attack by Ukrainian troops, now Russia will attack those places which will directly succeed in undermining the morale of the people of Ukraine and the government there."
At the same time, the Institute for the Study of War, a Washington-based think tank, said that Russian forces can now attack villages in Donetsk.
