Ukraine, Russia Set for More War in the East

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says that Ukrainian troops are preparing for an attack from Russian forces in the eastern Donbas region.

He is again appealing for outside support as a large Russian convoy of vehicles, troops and equipment head toward the region. The warning of an attack comes as fears mount of a Russian effort to target nonmilitary sites in the east and south of Ukraine as Russian efforts to capture Kyiv have failed.  A Russian victory in the Donbas region, where the Kyiv government has been fighting separatists for eight years, would mean a sense of achievement for Russian President Vladimir Putin, and he might annex Donbas just as he did with Crimea in 2014.

The conflict's shift to eastern Ukraine has been covered by media across the political spectrum.
