The timing of the attacks immediately after the agreement’s termination suggests a potential link, despite Russia’s denial. Ukrainian officials anticipate the possibility of further assaults, heightening fears of a broader military confrontation.


The international community closely watches these events, as they have significant implications for regional stability and global security. Efforts to de-escalate tensions and promote dialogue between Kremlin and Ukraine become crucial to preventing further violence and finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
