Russia Advances In Ukraine As Zelensky Begs For More

Russian troops are beginning to overwhelm the Ukrainian resistance and have called on the United States and its allies to send more weapons and ammunition, as Americans struggle to find their own.

The G7 summit was held in Germany this week, as Russian forces continue to push for more gains into eastern Ukraine – hoping to surround the last major city in the Luhansk region, one of the two regions that had declared independence from Ukraine.

The Wallstreet Journal reported:

Aided by artillery and airstrikes, Russian troops are advancing from the south to blockade the city of Lysychansk, which abuts the recently seized Severodonetsk, Ukrainian officials said. The governor of Luhansk again asked civilians to evacuate Lysychansk.

The plodding yet persistent Russian advance adds to pressure on Western leaders meeting at two summits this week to discuss how to support Ukraine and punish Russia.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pleaded with western allies to provide more weapons.

“Partners need to move faster if they are really partners, not observers,” Zelensky said. “Delays in weapons transfers to our state—any restrictions—this is actually an invitation for Russia to hit again and again.”

Zelensky asked for Ukraine to be provided specifically with more powerful and modern weaponry – anti-missile systems – after Russian missiles were fired into the capital city of Kyiv – causing one fatality and injuring a further four people.

The United States said at the G7 summit, that they plan to announce that Ukraine will be provided with advanced medium – to long-range surface to air missile systems and will be sent more ammunition, according to a senior official of the Biden administration.

The official added that other security measures and assistance are likely to be announced, including counter-battery radars, something that has been asked for by the Ukrainian military.

G7 leaders aimed to show a display of unity regarding the conflict that is on-going with Russia, including coming up with a plan to outline a future Marshall Plan for the reconstruction of Ukraine.

Another meeting will be held this week in Madrid, Spain, for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s summit, an alliance of 30 members. Some are keen to provide requested weaponry and ammunition, while other members are cautious about the long-term fallout.

While Ukraine initially managed to defend against Russian advancement, the ill-equipped military has been unable to hold back one of the largest superpower nations in the world – unsurprisingly.

This could have all been avoided, however, if Zelensky – who during his campaign made himself out to be pro-Russian – had promised Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country would not be joining NATO as this caused major security concerns for Putin.

Now as western nations are hurting with inflation that is the worst it has been for decades and high living costs, Americans are now expected to pay via their tax dollars, for a war that could have been easily avoided all in the first place.

  1. So, by your logic, we should not have fought in WW I, WW II, or the Korean war. We were protecting the Freedom and democracy of other countries, lest we need their help to do the same in our country. But by your reasoning, we shouldn’t have been involved in any of them. Is that what you believe?

  2. we should NOT be involved with this Ukraine war
    we will be paying it off forever
    taxes and high inflation recession to follow and maybe causing a depression
    this needs to stop

  3. Zelensky didn’t win a legitimate election. OUR Deep State cheated him into position just like they did Biden. We’re being played and manipulated and stolen from. OUR DEBT IS ALL DEEP STATE PROFIT!.

  4. Finally an article with at least some common sense, all that was required from the beginning was for prancing boy to observe the articles of the Minsk Agreement. Putin’s demands remain the same, get the NATO weapons out of Ukraine, assure Russia the Ukraine will not become a NATO member and leave the Donbas Russians to live in peace etc.
    Since 2014 the Ukrainian Nazis have been responsible for the deaths of 15,000 Donbas Russians. Tell me Chris Weimar, if Mexican Nazis were shooting American children on their way to school across the border….would you expect your Gov to do something about it? Stupid bastard.
    Putin has the support of his people Chris, and will act to defend them against your Nazis and the Globalist vermin who stole both your and the Ukraine elections. Does Mr Potato Head have the confidence of the American people Chris? Are you happy being a propagandized fool? Answer this question Chris, WTF is going on with the 32 captured Bio-Weapons labs the West has built along the Ukraine border with Russia?
