It’s been 523 days since the war between Ukraine and Russia. At least four people were killed and dozens wounded in two Russian missile attacks on Krivi Rih on Monday, where Ukraine is now the aggressor in the war. On the other hand, a Ukrainian drone also attacked a police station in the border Russian region of Bryansk at night, but there were no casualties. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s President Zelensky has warned about the attacks on Moscow that now the war is returning to Russia again, which is a necessary, natural and right outcome.
