Ukraine-Russia War : Russia wanted to undermine Ukraine’s very existence.
The Russian tyrant’s hypocritical stance comes amid his brutal war in Ukraine and is responsible for the horrific bloodshed of civilians and soldiers.
But the Kremlin has viewed the annual July 4 celebrations in the US as a perfect opportunity to throw a petty dig at the West.

The UK’s Ministry of Defence latest update
Ukraine Russia War : The UK’s Ministry of Defence have said that Ukrainian forces have “withdrawn” from the Lysychansk region.
The Ministry said: “Ukrainian forces have withdrawn from Lysychansk, likely falling back to prepared defensive positions. Russia’s Ministry of Defence had earlier claimed to have completed the encirclement of Lysychansk and secured full control of the city.
“Fighting in and around the city in Luhansk Oblast has intensified over the past week with Russian forces making steady progress.
“The city was the last remaining major population centre in Luhansk Oblast under Ukrainian control. Russia’s focus will now almost certainly switch to capturing Donetsk Oblast, a large portion of which remain under the control of Ukrainian forces.”
