Russia-Ukraine war will not happen on January 6-7
Julian calendar is used in Russia-Ukraine

Moscow. There is big news amid the Russia-Ukraine war. Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced a ceasefire with Ukraine for two days, 6 and 7 January. The appeal for this ceasefire was also made by the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. He appealed that the war in Ukraine should be stopped for 36 hours at the end of this week. On the other hand, Patriarch Kirill in Moscow suggested that a ceasefire be declared from Friday afternoon to Saturday midnight local time.
Significantly, the Russian Orthodox Church uses the old Julian calendar. That’s why the Christmas festival is celebrated on January 7, which falls 13 days after the Gregorian calendar. Let me tell you, this proposal of the Russian Church was earlier rejected by the authorities of Ukraine. Mykhailo Padolyak, adviser to the President of Ukraine, rejected the proposal, saying that ‘it is part of the trap and propaganda’. Earlier, Kirill had justified the war against Ukraine.
war is going to be a year
Let us tell you, the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is about to complete one year. Even after so long both the countries are not ending the war. On one hand Ukraine is asking for help from the world, on the other hand Russia is wreaking havoc on it on its own. Russia is also using sophisticated weapons to suppress Ukraine. Let us tell you, Russian President Putin has sent a frigate equipped with new generation hypersonic cruise missiles to the Atlantic Sea. With this, Russia has made it clear that now it is not going to back down in the war.
hypersonic missile is so fast
Explain that along with China and America, Russia is also developing hypersonic weapons. The speed of hypersonic missiles is five times more than the speed of sound. By using such missiles, the enemy can be easily dominated. In a video conference with Defense Ministers Sergei Shoigu and Igor Krokhmal, Russian President Putin said that the ship Zircon was equipped with hypersonic weapons.
