Deputy director of Moscow’s Security Council and Former President – Dmitry Medvedev has broadcasted maps to show what he thinks would be the future of Ukraine. According to Dmitry Medvedev, Kyiv would likely be relieved to Kyiv and its surrounding areas
On July 27, Medvedev transferred two maps in a Telegram post, the first one leading the Ukrainian region before the Ukraine crisis of 2014, which comprises Crimea and the two eastern provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk. “In the mentality of the president of Ukraine, hurt by psychotropic importance, this is what the map of his nation’s optimistic future will glance like,” Medvedev noted about the original map in his Telegram post.
The two maps released by Medvedev are the most delinquent in the sequence of hawkish comments created by the Former Russian President in his Telegram posts since the onset of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Once thought a reformist by the Western nation, Medvedev, currently the deputy director of Russia’s Security Council, has embraced an increasingly aggressive tone since the beginning of the Moscow invasion of Kyiv.
“Dmitry Medvedev is, it looks, attempting to establish his relevancy and faithfulness in a method that has evolved markedly more hawkish and slightly kind of grey”.
Ukrainian Region Under Russian Occupation
So far, Putin has been capable of bringing the Luhansk province under its control and is presently concentrated on seizing Donetsk, after which the whole Donbas area will come under the Russian domain, reaching the dream of delivering Donbas republics.
Apart from that, the Russian army also holds some north-eastern parts of the Kharkiv province, and regions of the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions in the south, as of July 27.
Specialists suggest that Russia may say the ‘Special Operation’ was successful after taking the power of the Donbas republics, which President Putin could sell as a victory to the Russian people.
President Putin declared in June that the “overall objective” of Russia’s military procedure in Ukraine is to free Donbas, defend its people and create situations that will ensure Russia’s security.
However, thinking by the maps set out by Medvedev, it accomplishes not seem that Russia would pay just for a few areas in the south and east of Ukraine.
Kyiv Fights Back Against Russia
The Ukrainian Army has started a counter-offensive in the south to carry back Kherson, which is picking speed, per a Spying Update by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense (MoD) dated July 28. On July 19, Ukrainian forces used HIMARS Missile, Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), to smash the Antonovsky bridge, a vital river junction that joins Kherson and Crimea. The bridgeheads over the Dnieper River and is a crucial reserve route for the Russian troops to provide locations it has colonised to the west of the bridge.
According to the United Kingdom’s MoD, Moscow’s 49th Army, stationed on the west bank of the Dnieper River, appears weak. Also, Kherson city, which is politically and symbolically crucial for Moscow, is carved off from the different engaged parts. Kherson was the principal city in Ukraine to be seized by Russian troops after their attack in February.
