Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Jake Sullivan said that the United States has not yet decided whether it will support Ukraine in the event of an offensive by the Ukrainian armed forces in Crimea. CNN writes about it.

Sullivan noted that the United States was helping Ukraine so it could be successful on the battlefield and use them in negotiations.

“I can’t answer yes or no to a hypothetical development question,” Sullivan said.

Earlier, the deputy head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, Vadim Skibitsky, said that Ukraine was preparing an offensive against Russia, which involves the capture of Crimea and the destruction of military depots.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyyyy has also announced his intention to take over Crimea. In turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that the war in Ukraine was started by the West, and the Russian Federation intervened to stop the conflict.

On February 24, 2022, the army of the Russian Federation launched a special military operation in Ukraine.

Acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin said Russian armed forces were approaching Vuhledar from three directions at once: from the south, south-west and west. The head of the DPR stressed that “the process is not moving quickly”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyyyy, in turn, said that the situation in Donbass is hardening. According to Zelenskyyy, a very difficult situation for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is developing in Artemovsk (Bakhmut) and Vugledar, as well as in Limansky and other directions.
