Ukrainian MP 'fairly optimistic' about army advance

Sky, 02 Oct 2022
Ukrainian MP Lesia Vasylenko has told Sky News that she is "fairly optimistic" about the current situation on the ground, adding that the front lines are looking "pretty good" for her country.

She said: "I'm fairly optimistic and despite [Valdimir] Putin trying to distract from the advances of the Ukrainian army in the east, the Ukrainian army is still advancing regardless of the annexation announcements, sham referendums, all of that is absolutely meaningless when it comes to the Ukrainian military units coming forward and liberating people."
