Informe de la situación de la guerra en Ucrania – día 117
June 20, 2022 - El presidente Zelenskiy predice que Rusia intensificará sus ataques esta semana mientras que los líderes de la Unión Europea consideran si apoyarán la solicitud de Ucrania de unirse al bloque y Rusia intensifica su campaña para ganar el control del este de Ucrania.
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.
