Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has issued a word of caution in his fight for the country’s independence from Russia, promising the Russian people that there is an “unpleasant surprise” to come.
“I am not ready to communicate with you, to say when we will be advancing,” he reportedly stated. “Because to some extent, this prepares the enemy. And, therefore, I would like it to be an unpleasant surprise, not the other way around.”

Zelensky also appeared to suggest that the Ukrainian army is short on weapons and consequently called on the West to send more his way.
“We are expecting appropriate armoured equipment. It comes in parts, and with that amount, you can move forward… But we will lose a lot of people. I believe that this is impossible. We need to wait. We need some more time” he said, per Euronews.
This news comes as former President Trump appeared on a CNN town hall to discuss a myriad of issues, including the war between Russia and Ukraine, which Trump says will be settled in a day if he wins the White House in the upcoming presidential election.
During that interview, CNN host Kaitlin Collins pressed the former president numerous times to say whether he wanted Ukraine or Russia to win. Trump maintained that the issue is about preventing further losses of life, not winning or losing.
“I’ll meet with Putin. I’ll meet with Zelensky. They both have weaknesses, and both have strengths and within 24 hours that war will be settled, it’ll be over, it’ll be absolutely over,” promised Trump.
