In one of the biggest attack, Russia launched swarm of drones for months against Ukraine on Monday, the eve of Russia’s May 9 holiday celebrating the defeat of Nazi Germany.
This is considered the biggest drone swarm yet in a renewed Russian air campaign unleashed 10 days ago.
“Russia had fired 60 Iranian-made kamikaze drones at Ukrainian targets, including 36 at the capital, all of which had been shot down,” Kyiv’s mayor said, adding that debris hit apartments and other buildings, injuring at least five people in the capital.
Zelenskiy, who addressed the nation from a hilltop overlooking Kyiv said that Ukraine and the free world remember six terrible years in the history of mankind.
“We will never forget the contribution of the Ukrainian people to the victory over Nazism. And we will not allow anyone to erase the role of Ukrainians in this victory, our people, that generation whose memory we cherish in almost every family,” he said.
Remembering the heroism of millions of Ukrainians in that war against Nazism, we see the same heroism in the actions of our soldiers now – the descendants of those who secured the victory – the surrender of Nazism that day, on May 8, 1945.
“We do not yet know the date of our victory but we know that it will be a holiday for all of Ukraine, for all of Europe, for the entire free world. There will be a holiday for all our heroes – our defenders, all our people who fight and work for our victory, all our allies and partners who strive for our victory as much as we do,” he said.
The Causes of the Russia-Ukraine War
The Russia-Ukraine War is a conflict between the two countries that has been ongoing since 2014. The war began when Russian forces invaded and annexed the Crimean Peninsula, a region of Ukraine that is home to a large Russian-speaking population. Since then, the conflict has escalated, with Russian-backed separatists controlling parts of eastern Ukraine and a number of ceasefires being broken.
The roots of the conflict can be traced back to the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Ukraine declared its independence and became a sovereign nation. This was met with strong opposition from Russia, which had long viewed Ukraine as part of its sphere of influence. In the years that followed, Russia sought to maintain its influence over Ukraine, using both economic and political means.
The immediate cause of the conflict was the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution, which saw the overthrow of the pro-Russian government of Viktor Yanukovych. In response, Russia moved to annex the Crimean Peninsula, which it viewed as a strategic asset.
This move was met with international condemnation, and the United Nations General Assembly voted to condemn the annexation. The conflict has since escalated, with Russian-backed separatists controlling parts of eastern Ukraine and a number of ceasefires being broken.
Russia has also been accused of providing military support to the separatists, including weapons and personnel. This has led to a number of civilian casualties, as well as a humanitarian crisis in the region.

Russia, meanwhile, has been subject to a number of economic sanctions from the international community, which have had a significant impact on its economy.
