White House chief of staff Ron Klein warns that the war in Ukraine is “far from over” despite Moscow’s claims withdrawal of troops from Kyiv.
He stated this in an interview ABC.

“As President Zelensky said, this (for the Russian Federation to seize the eastern regions of Ukraine, while Kyiv retains control over the rest – UNIAN) is unacceptable for him, and we are going to support him with military assistance, economic assistance, humanitarian assistance,” he added.
