Russia targeted US mercenaries and foreign troops aiding Ukraine in Donetsk

Moscow/Kyiv – The Russian forces have continued to launch heavy attacks after the retreat in Kharkiv. In the last 24 hours, Russia launched significant attacks in the Donbas region, including Kharkiv and the Mykolayiv region in the south. The Russian Defence Forces said they targeted foreign units in the Donbas region, including US mercenaries assisting Ukraine. Besides, Ukraine has claimed that a missile attack occurred near the Mykolaiv region’s Pivdennoukrainsk nuclear power plant. Against this backdrop, US Army Chief General Mark Milley has indicated that the attacks from Russia may be more intense in the near future.

A few days ago, Russia suffered losses in counter-attacks launched by the Ukrainian army in Kharkiv. Besides, Russian military units had to withdraw as well. This withdrawal of the Russian army significantly impacted the international level, including Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin also took notice of this. Putin had warned that if there were an attempt to put more pressure on the Russian forces, Russia would attack more aggressively and violently in the future. After this statement from the President, the Russian forces started a series of jarring attacks in Ukraine.
