A Ukrainian MP has said she is “fairly optimistic” with the situation on the ground in Ukraine and the frontlines are looking “good.”
Speaking to Sky News Lesia Vasylenko MP said that every single Ukrainian is and has been affected by the war and “quick victory” is needed.
Vasylenko said, “I’m fairly optimistic and despite Putin trying to distract from the advances of the Ukrainian army in the east, the Ukrainian army is still advancing regardless of the annexation announcements, sham referendums all of that is absolutely meaningless when it comes to the Ukrainian military units coming forward and liberating people.
“It’s looking pretty good on the front lines for Ukraine, but of course, we are still reliant on the support from our allies.”
