Russia and Ukraine, half a year of armed conflict

Moscow, 27 August. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine came in the week that ended today after half a year without seeing its end, something like an agreement to end hostilities.

In these 180-plus days, amid conflicting positions about when to fire the last shot to begin a return to normal or the ultimate victory of one army over another, there are several scenarios where civilian casualties and social damage to infrastructure increase daily.

After the first weeks of confrontation, some analysts have dared to say that the measures will continue until the end of May, opinions changed reality soon after, and there were those who ventured to predict the end of about August.

The military operation launched by Moscow on February 24 in Ukraine went through several stages in these six months, including the control of Russian forces over the territory of the unilaterally proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, as well as regions such as Zaporozhye and Kherson, committed to holding referendums to join Russia.

On the one hand, the Kremlin authorities assure that they will not conclude the process until the goal of “disarmament” and “disarmament” of the neighboring country is achieved, and on the other hand, President Vladimir Zelensky requires peace negotiations every day to put forward any argument.

However, it is noted that Western support for Kyiv has declined, especially from the European Union, since at least July, the six largest countries in the bloc (UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Poland) have retreated, not offering any new arms shipments on Ukraine.

However, one cannot lose sight of the fact that the US government, like a good theater director, continues to promote the conflict and announces a new military aid package for how practically every two weeks, amounting to millions of dollars.

Similarly, it should be noted that in the sixth month the explosions by the Ukrainian army on the nuclear power plant in Zaporozhye were the focus of international attention.

Ukrainian forces are constantly attacking the region, endangering Europe’s largest atomic facility, which could lead to a catastrophe with risks for many countries in the region.

It is clear that these positions cause the majority of the world, including some politicians, to cross their fingers to call for an end to the conflict, although others, especially those associated with Washington, are in favor that Kyiv is not negotiating with Moscow.

It is clear that the intentions of the White House and its allies to expand the confrontations are aimed at weakening the Eurasian state militarily and causing the greatest possible damage to its economy.

In any case, at present there is only a certainty that the hostilities have reached half a year, without the possibility of predicting when they will end, as has happened in most warlike conflicts in history. (Text and image: PL)
