New massive rocket attacks on the territory of Ukraine by Russia may be associated with two factors, military expert Oleg Zhdanov said.
He called Putin’s yesterday’s conversation with French President Macron the first.

There is a reason: the conversation with Macron, apparently, inspired Putin in his intentions to conquer Ukraine or occupy. Therefore, we received such an answer,” he said. Zhdanov site “Today”.
Another “reason” for the shelling, he called the unsuccessful recent trip of the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces to Izyum, where he fell under our fire raid.
According to the expert, Ukraine should now resolve the issue with partners in order to receive anti-missile weapons under Lend-Lease in order to defend itself. Zhdanov notes that it is necessary to accelerate the supply of weapons.
“It is necessary to set, for example, such frameworks and such conditions that we receive military-technical assistance from them, so if they want this assistance not to fly into the air, it must be protected. accelerate this process,” he said.
