Ukraine Krieg -– Situationsbericht Tag 117

By Jordi Bou

June 20, 2022 - Präsident Zelenski erwartet, dass Russland seine Angriffe in dieser Woche verstärken wird, während die Staatschefs der Europäischen Union beraten, ob sie Ukraines Ersuchen um Beitritt zum Block unterstützen sollen und Russland seine Kampagne zur Kontrollübernahme in der Ostukraine noch weiter intensiviert.

Leaders of the 27-nation union will consider the question at a summit on Thursday and Friday and are expected to endorse Ukraine's application despite misgivings from some member states. The process could take many years to complete.

Speaking during his nightly address from Kyiv, President Zelenskiy said he and his advisors expect “greater hostile activity” from Moscow, but told citizens that his forces “are preparing” and are ready for any renewed assault.

He pledged to push forward with what he called Ukraine’s “historic” ambitions to join the EU, which were endorsed by the bloc’s executive, the European Commission, last week.
