Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that Russia intends to maintain control over broader regions beyond eastern Ukraine, including Kherson and Zaporizhzhia provinces in the south, and other areas. He made these statements on state-controlled television and a news agency after Ukrainian troops fired a bridge essential to the supply of Russian forces operating in southern Ukraine.

Lavrov’s remarks on Russia’s plans to occupy more territories and the Ukrainian missile attack on the strategically vital bridge in the Kherson region hinted that the nearing five-month-long war could spread to other parts of the country.

Since Russian forces captured more of the two provinces that comprise Ukraine’s industrial Donbas region, Ukrainian officials planned an offensive to retake Russian-occupied areas in the south. The Ukrainian attack on the Dnipro River bridge also weakened Russia’s stronghold on the southern Kherson territory.

Interim Conclusion at August 2022

Russian invasion of Ukraine has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of people, the exile of millions more, and the leveling of entire cities, mainly in Russian-speaking regions in the east and southeast of Ukraine.

As a result, global energy and food prices have soared, including fears of starvation in less developed nations since Ukraine and Russia are both significant grain producers.

What Russia is now holding in Ukraine is not prime territory anymore but a near wasteland that they will have to rebuild almost from the ground up.
