Russian forces employed drones in an attack on Kyiv on Monday that—once again—targeted Ukrainian infrastructure and its power grid.
“Several explosions were heard in the Solomaynskyi and Shevchenkovskiy districts of the capital,” Vitali Klitschko, Kyiv’s mayor, said.
Serhiy Popko, the head of Kyiv’s military administration, told reporters that emergency workers in the country have been working to repair the buildings that were hit.
The country has been working to shore up its power grid and Volodymyr Zelensky, the president, had just announced that six million Ukrainians had power again.
Zelensky’s office told reporters that there were no major casualties in the attack, but said three civilians died in the conflict from Sunday into Monday in separate clashes.
Putin Meets with Lukashenko
Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his Belarussian counterpart, Alexander Lukashenko, to announce new military cooperation and to form a “single defense space.”
The BBC reported that Putin has been pressuring Minsk to take an active role in the conflict. Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, called the reports “totally stupid, groundless fabrications.”
Sharing a border with both Russia and Ukraine Belarus President Lukashenko said his country would “never be enemies” with Russia.
“This is the state closest to us, the peoples closest to us,” he said. “I think that as long as we are in power, we will adhere to this trend. If it were otherwise, it would be like in Ukraine.”
TREND FORECAST: We maintain our forecast that Russia will defeat Ukraine despite the billions being sent by the U.S. and its allies to Ukraine in military equipment and financial aid. Yet, the Western media keeps selling the propaganda that despite most of Ukraine being under attack by Russia, and some 70 percent of its electrical infrastructure destroyed, Ukraine is winning the war.
Also, The Trends Journal has reported extensively on how the U.S. is at war with Russia, but it will not be officially declared until a nuclear exchange or a major false flag attack.
