Today is the 131st day of the war in Ukraine. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called on the West to explain why Ukraine cannot be a member of NATO, while Sweden and Finland can. Kuleba's reaction comes after the increasingly clear picture that Ukraine, despite fierce resistance, is increasingly forced to withdraw its troops after the onslaught of Russian military units

After yesterday's conquest of the last Urkai stronghold in the Luhansk region, the city of Lisichansk, Russian troops are focused on the Kharkiv region.

Last night, Russian forces hit a high school building in the Kharkiv district with a rocket, a projectile hit a school in the Shevchenko district, and rescuers are searching the ruins, the governor of Kharkiv announced on his Telegram account.

He added that Russian forces are attacking towns and villages in the region of Kharkiv, Izum and Bogodukiv, as well as destroying residential buildings, farms, garages and other facilities with grenades.

In the meantime, apart from the Ukrainian president Zelensky's promises that the Ukrainian army will return to all the territories from which it is withdrawing, KIve is daily releasing information on the numbers of Russian losses in this war.

According to them, the latest estimates of Russian losses are 36.200 soldiers, 1.589 tanks and 187 helicopters.
