Zelensky applauds freedom in the Russian-free region of Kherson.mp4

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has triumphantly walked the streets of the newly liberated city of Kherson, hailing Russia’s withdrawal as the “beginning of the end of the war”.

But he also acknowledged the high price Ukrainian troops are paying for their strenuous efforts to push back the invaders.

The recapture of Kherson was one of Ukraine’s greatest successes in the nearly nine-month war and dealt another serious blow to the Kremlin. It could serve as a springboard for further advances into occupied territory.

US President Joe Biden called it a “significant victory” for Ukraine. “I can only applaud the courage, determination and capacity of the Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian army,” he said on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin has proposed stripping Russian citizens of their passports for criticizing the war in Ukraine.

The new crackdown on dissent would also result in Russians who spread “fake news” or question the country’s annexation of large parts of Ukraine losing their citizenship, the Kremlin’s new bureau said. Ria Novosti.

US Sanctions Non-Russians Associated With Military Suppliers

The US said Monday it is imposing sanctions on a list of people and companies around the world it alleged are involved in supporting the Russian military in its war against Ukraine.

Unlike recent packages of sanctions imposed on Russian-based companies and people, the latest financial and diplomatic sanctions target a range of entities, including French real estate companies, a group of Swiss nationals and a Taiwanese buyer of microelectronic components.

All are accused of being financial facilitators or facilitators of Russia’s military supply chain, which US officials promised to disrupt after the invasion of Ukraine began in February.

The UN General Assembly calls for reparations by Russia to Ukraine

The resolution recognizes the need to establish “an international mechanism for reparation for damage, loss or injury” resulting from Russia’s “unlawful acts” against Ukraine.
