Latest news on Russia and the war in Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the intense fighting in eastern Ukraine represents “the most difficult point” of the conflict, with Russian forces “pressing hard” in the region.

Several cities, towns and villages in the Luhansk region have been the focus of severe fighting for several weeks with Russian and Ukrainian forces engaged in street battles as Russian artillery fire destroys infrastructure and homes in the region.

Meanwhile, tensions are high between Russia and Lithuania after the latter, a NATO member, banned the rail transfer of all EU-sanctioned goods (such as metals, coal, construction materials and high-tech products) from from mainland Russia to Kaliningrad, a Russian country. enclave on the Baltic Sea.

Russia has warned of “serious” consequences against what it has called “hostile actions” by Lithuania, while NATO members have reiterated their support for the country.

On the other hand, it is a tense week for Ukraine as it waits to see if it will be granted the status of a candidate country to the European Union. I should know by the end of the week when an EU summit concludes.
