The upper house of the Russian parliament also unanimously approved the annexation of four Ukrainian regions



On the annexation of the regions, the upper house of the Russian parliament

Ukrainian forces are advancing along the Dnieper River in the south of the country and are still on the offensive in the east, meaning that the Russian army no longer controls the entire territory it annexed. Meanwhile, the upper house of the Russian parliament also accepted the annexation.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said in an overnight video address that the army had succeeded “conquer some new places in several provinces”, but that fierce fighting is taking place in several areas. The losses of the Russian army were confirmed both in the Kremlin and by pro-Russian leaders in the Ukrainian regions. They also announced that the Russian army is defending itself with all its might, writes the BBC.

On Monday, the Ukrainian units managed to win an important victory, as they conquered several villages along the Dnieper river in the south, among other things, they once again control the places of Solota Balka and Hreščenivka. With their rapid advance, they threaten the supply routes of the Russian army. About 25,000 Russian troops are said to be on the west bank of the Dnieper, and the Ukrainian army has badly damaged the Antonivsky bridge, through which the Russians supply their troops in the center of Kherson.

Representative of the Russian occupation forces in the Kherson region Kiril Stremusov confirmed that the Ukrainian forces near Dudčani moved about 20 kilometers south. The Ukrainian army destroyed 31 tanks in this area.

Ukrainian forces are also achieving success in the east of the country, after taking full control of the city of Liman in the Donetsk region at the end of the week. It was Ukraine’s first military victory on territory seized by Russia.

The accession was also confirmed by the upper house of the Russian parliament

After being the president of Russia Vladimir Putin solemnly announced the annexation of the four Ukrainian regions of Luhansk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye and Kherson on Friday, their annexation to Russia was also unanimously approved by the lower house of the Russian parliament, the Duma, on Monday.

Today, the upper house of the Russian parliament also decided on the annexation and unanimously accepted the annexation of all four Ukrainian regions to Russia. The document will now be back in the hands of President Putin, who will sign it again. This will complete the formal process of annexation, and Russia will annex 18 percent of Ukraine’s territory. Her move is not recognized by the international community.

The Kremlin admitted on Monday that they are still assessing which parts of occupied Ukraine belong to the annexed territories.

The US promises Ukraine additional Himars missile systems

The United States will send four more modern Himars missile systems to Ukraine, which play a key role in the fight against the Russian military, an unnamed US military official said Monday in Washington. It will be part of a new $625 million aid package to be officially announced today.

High Mobility Artillery Missile Systems (Himars) allow the Ukrainians to shell Russian forces from afar, destroy bridges and other infrastructure, and hinder the supply of Russian troops at the front. The USA has already delivered 16 such systems to Ukraine.

The U.S. also provided assistance to Ukraine under a special program, the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, under which Kyiv can purchase 18 more Himars systems with long-term installment payments. The latest aid package also includes ammunition and other equipment for Ukrainian troops.

Zelensky and Musk at odds over plans to end the war
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Monday sharply criticized American billionaire Elon Musk, who published a poll on Twitter with his proposals for ending the war in Ukraine. These include, among other things, the holding of new referendums on the occupied Ukrainian territories and the transfer of Crimea to Russia. Elon Musk has asked his 107.7 million Twitter followers to vote on his proposals for a peaceful end to the war in Ukraine. He proposed that Ukraine should become neutral, give up the Crimean peninsula, and hold new referendums in the four occupied Ukrainian regions under the supervision of the United Nations. He also emphasized that Ukraine’s victory is unlikely, as Russia has three times the population. Zelensky quickly intervened in the discussion about a peaceful solution to the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, who in response published his poll, in which he asked his followers whether they liked the richest man in the world better when he supported Ukraine or Russia. More than 90 percent of voters voted for Musk, who supports Ukraine.
