Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region has not yet been lost to the Russians, a top US general said on Wednesday.
“No, it’s not lost yet,” US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley said in a press briefing when asked by a reporter if the region was lost.
Moscow’s military “tasks” in Ukraine now go beyond the eastern Donbas region, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday.
