Kyiv. Russia’s overnight bombings in eastern Ukraine killed at least one person as President Vladimir Putin ended a 36-hour unilateral ceasefire on Orthodox Christmas. Moscow has reiterated its resolve to continue the war until it wins a victory over its neighbor by ending its self-proclaimed unilateral ceasefire on Christmas. Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a 36-hour ceasefire on Friday on the occasion of Orthodox Christmas celebrated in Russia and Ukraine. Most Ukrainian Orthodox Christians traditionally celebrate Christmas on January 7, as do Orthodox Christians in Russia.
However, Ukraine rejected this unilateral ceasefire. The region’s governor, Oleh Tsinehubov, said on the Telegram messaging app that Russian shelling killed a 50-year-old man in the northeastern region of Kharkiv. According to Russia’s official news agency Tass (TASS) agency, President Putin’s First Deputy Chief of Staff Sergei Kiriyenko said that the tasks set by President Putin for the special military operation will be completed and Russia will definitely win. At present, there is no end in sight to the war going on in its 11th month. Which has killed thousands of people, displaced millions and turned many cities of Ukraine into a pile of rubble.
