Russia 'Ready' To Continue Talks With Ukraine: 5 Latest Facts

Ukraine War: Russian paratroopers clashed with Ukraine Army in Kharkiv today

New Delhi:
A week after launching its invasion of Ukraine, Russia said its forces took control the first sizable city today, seizing Kherson, in the south, as fighting raged around the country and Western nations tightened an economic noose around Russia.

Here are 5 latest facts on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine:

  1. Russia today said that they are ready to continue talks with Ukraine. The first round of negotiations did not produce tangible results.

  2. Russian military claims to have taken control of Ukraine’s Kherson. “The Russian divisions of the armed forces have taken the regional centre of Kherson under full control,” defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in televised remarks.

  3. Russian Army paratroopers landed in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-most populous city. The Ukrainian Army said that there were clashes as soon as Russia’s airborne troops landed. Kharkiv, a largely Russian-speaking city near the Russian border, has a population of around 1.4 million.

  4. In his State of the Union address, Joe Biden warned ‘dictator’ Vladimir Putin of diplomatic and economic isolation for invading Ukraine. Biden also spoke to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy about how the US and its allies are working to hold Russia accountable.

  5. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which began last Thursday, has resulted in several sanctions, trade restrictions and financial penalties. Apple and Nike have both announced plans to halt product sales in Russia.
