#Putin embarrassing himself on the global stage: UK
UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss says Vladimir Putin is “humiliating himself on the global stage” and calls for harsher sanctions against Moscow.
In a G7 meeting, she said the sanctions should not be relaxed until all Russian troops have left Ukraine.
#In his address last night, Ukrainian President Zelensky asserted that Russia had already suffered an “obvious” strategic defeat.
#The United Nations Human Rights Council ordered an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by Russian forces in Ukraine.
In response, Russia claimed to be demonized by the western world.
#Finnish leaders had announced plans to join the NATO defensive alliance “immediately”.
But Moscow issued a warning on the potential movement, saying it “certainly” views Finnish membership as a threat.
