Kyiv: Russia claims to have captured two Ukrainian villages near Bakhmut. Following the attacks in the Donetsk region, there are reports that Russian forces have completely liberated the settlements of Pershe Travnia and Bilogorivka. At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that there will be no advance as claimed by the Russian forces.
Russian forces are trying to advance in the Donbas region and Kharkiv. “The situation is difficult,” Zelensky said. “They are still planning and trying to advance in the Donetsk region, gain a foothold in the Luhansk region, and move towards the Kharkiv region.” The new reference comes after he said the other day that Russia will launch a missile attack on Ukraine in the coming days. Accordingly, he had warned the people of Ukraine. Meanwhile, NATO allies offered more weapons, power, and other restoration equipment.
Ukrainian women are tortured by the Russian army

Zelenska was speaking at an international conference on dealing with torture in conflict. She spoke about the atrocities committed against Ukrainian women during the war. Torture is the cruelest way to dominate. No one feels safe. They said it should be seen as a war crime and should be punished.
