The Financial Times published an article stating that the Russian army may be planning a large-scale offensive in Ukraine this summer. The goal is the complete seizure of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia oblasts.

A “highlight” was the part of the article stating that the Kremlin considered another attempt to seize Kharkiv or Kyiv.

It sounds scary, of course, and causes one to panic. But in fact, the journalists did not say anything new. It is obvious that Putin has not abandoned the idea of seizing all of Ukraine and continues to use all available resources at the front.

However, this does not mean that the Kremlin’s plans will come true. After all, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to hold the defence, and Kyiv is reliably protected. The occupiers could not reach the capital in early 2022, when the Ukrainian army was weaker and less armed, and they will not be able to do so now.

Instead of panicking and spiralling, help the Defence Forces: donate, volunteer, spread important and verified information.
