Welcome to Lena News! In breaking news, a Russian soldier was tragically killed when the trench he dug to hide from Ukrainian strikes became his grave.
The soldier was attempting to hide from Ukrainian forces but something went wrong and a Ukrainian drone dropped a shell on him, causing his untimely death.
On the other side, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched his “special military operation” against Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
While the Kremlin initially aimed for a quick military victory, Ukraine responded with stronger than expected defense efforts, supported by Western military aid, weakening Russian gains.
After over a year of conflict, Russia still struggles to make progress, with fighting continuing in eastern Ukraine.
Following Ukraine’s counterattack last fall, which saw the military’s reclamation of thousands of previously occupied square miles, Russia began launching missile strikes against Ukrainian civilian areas and vital infrastructure, including energy facilities, in an attempt to add pressure to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to agree to end the war.
