Ukrainian officials say the military launched a new push against Russian lines, achieving some gains in the south, The Washington Post reported. A U.S. official said the purpose of Ukraine moving additional forces to the Zaporizhzhia region was unclear, adding that it could be the result of fresh troops probing Russian lines or replacing fatigued units.
Here’s the latest on the war and its ripple effects across the globe.
Putin said fighting in Ukraine had intensified. “[M]ost of the armed clashes have taken place in the main attack, the principle attack area, in the Zaporizhzhia sector,” Putin told journalists at the Russia-Africa summit in St. Petrsburg.
Putin promised free grain to six African nations in the coming months. It was not clear when or how the deliveries would be made to Burkina Faso, Zimbabwe, Mali, Central African Republic, Eritrea and Somalia — where millions of people face severe hunger. U.N. officials have denounced the Kremlin for nixing an agreement that had helped alleviate the global food crisis.
The African Union’s chairman called on Moscow to “facilitate the access of both Ukrainian and Russian food.” In a speech at the summit in St. Petersburg, Azali Assoumani said African nations were ready to work “on all fronts” with Moscow, which he described as a “special partner,” and said a resolution with Ukraine would help save people suffering from the food crisis.
