Russia-Ukraine Crisis: The U.S. and Germany pledged on June 1st to equip Ukraine with some of the advanced weapons it has long desired for shooting down aircraft and knocking out artillery, as Russian forces closed in on capturing a key city in the east.
Germany said it will supply Ukraine with up-to-date anti-aircraft missiles and radar systems, while the U.S. announced it will provide four sophisticated, medium-range rocket systems and ammunition. Meanwhile, the Kremlin accused the U.S. of “pouring fuel on the fire.”It’s been 100 days since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine that weakened the global economy and turned the world order upside down.
Russian forces were attempting to consolidate their hold on Ukraine‘s industrial city of Sievierodonetsk on June 2, edging closer to claiming a big prize in their offensive in the eastern Donbas region. Pelé published a message on Wednesday urging Vladimir Putin to stop the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has resulted in thousands of deaths and displaced millions.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said on Wednesday that 2,00,000 children are among the Ukrainians who have been forcefully taken to Russia and dispersed across the vast country. They include children from orphanages, children taken with their parents and those separated from their families.
