US Defense Secretary: Ukraine can win

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin kicked off defense talks with more than 40 countries today by expressing his confidence that Ukraine can prevail over Russia in the two-month conflict.

“Your resistance inspired the free world,” Austin said, denouncing the Russian invasion of Ukraine as “unjustifiable.” “It is clear that Ukraine has confidence in its ability to win, and so does everyone here,” he added.
And the authorities in the Zaporizhia region in southern Ukraine announced that at least one person was killed and another wounded in a missile strike on a commercial building.
The district administration said that two missiles hit the commercial building, while a third exploded before reaching its target.
