Putin also wants to devour western Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin is desperate to occupy eastern Ukraine. Donetsk and Luhansk, in particular, are under Russian occupation at the moment. However, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that Russian President Putin will not stop there. “President Putin is not stopping now,” he told the United States and Western European countries. And Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is just the beginning. Putin is seeking revenge for the collapse of the Soviet Union.

As a result, this time he will direct his troops to occupy other western countries. In fact, Transnistria, part of Ukraine’s western neighbor Moldova, has been under Russian occupation since the 1990s. After the capture of Mariupol, Russian General Rustam Minekayev said that Moscow’s communication with Transnistria would be facilitated if Russian control was established in southern Ukraine.

Today, the Ukraine war is two months away. As the days go by, Russia is stepping up its attacks. Russia test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile called ‘Sarmat’ last Wednesday. Capable of carrying nuclear weapons, these weapons are capable of striking the United States. Russia is planning to deploy the ‘Sarmat’ on the Ukrainian border.

In two months, large areas of Ukraine were occupied by Russian troops. However, Zelensky’s forces recaptured several Russian-occupied territories. In this situation, Putin has given priority to occupying the Donbass region near the Russian border by slowing down the campaign towards Kiev. For this reason, Putin recently assigned General Alexander Dornikov, known as the “most efficient and brutal” officer of the Russian army, to occupy the Danvas. In the past, Dornikov has played a key role in the victory of forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad in the war in Syria.

Russia’s senior commander, Maj. Gen. Rustam Minekayev, meanwhile, said their goal was to quickly gain full control of the southern and eastern Donbass areas of Ukraine. If this goal is achieved, a direct land connection of the Russian territory with the occupied Crimea will be created in 2014. And if that happens, Russian troops will be able to enter western Europe effortlessly. Russian Defense Ministry officials told the BBC they were examining the statement.

The US news agency AP found some more such posts on social media. Their families are searching for 13 young men who were working in the warship Moscow but are now missing. All in all, the pressure on the Russian government to increase the number of casualties in the shipwreck.
