Ukraine news LIVE — Evil Putin faces 'extremely big losses' as Kremlin plots new wave of missile strikes | The Sun

THE Kremlin could be facing over "100,000" losses before Christmas, according to steadfast Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Speaking in his nightly address, Mr Zelensky warned that despite massive losses, the Kremlin is still attempting to advance.

He said: "Despite extremely big Russian losses, the occupiers are still trying to advance in the Donetsk region, gain a foothold in the Luhansk region, move in the Kharkiv region, they are planning something in the south."

He added Russia could be set to “lose a hundred thousand of its soldiers…and only God knows how many mercenaries,” by the end of the year.

This comes as experts warn Putin could be set to begin a new wave of missile strikes across Ukraine in the coming days, targeting the country's ability to produce electricity this winter.

    Ukraine’s masterful artworks go on display at Madrid museum

    Dozens of modern artworks removed from Kyiv to protect them from Russian strikes that have already done huge damage to Ukraine’s cultural heritage went on display at a Madrid museum on Tuesday.

    The works on show at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum of Art as part of the “In the Eye of the Storm: Modernism in Ukraine 1900-1930” exhibition include oil paintings, sketches and collages.

    Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza founded “Museums for Ukraine” which is seeking to showcase Ukrainian art, using the museum which houses her late father’s collection for the exhibition.

    The Madrid exhibition is one of a number of showings of Ukraine’s cultural heritage across Europe, as well as an effort to raise awareness of the threat posed to the war-torn country’s artistic legacy as fighting grinds on.

    Curators say it is one of the most comprehensive surveys of Ukrainian modern art in the period between 1900 to 1930.

    President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a video shown at a preview Monday that “this is a vision of what Russia is trying to destroy”.

    Could Russia be planning to leave Europe’s largest nuclear power plant?

    Ukrainian officials have suggested the Kremlin could be planning to pull its forces from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

    “In recent weeks we are effectively receiving information that signs have appeared that they are possibly preparing to leave the [plant],” Petro Kotin, head of energy operator Energoatom, said this week.

    “One gets the impression they’re packing their bags and stealing everything they can.”
