Near Kherson, Ukraine — Russian forces were still shelling areas near‘s capital Thursday, two days after Moscow there to facilitate peace talks. Ukraine’s president told his people Wednesday night that the fight to repel Russia’s invasion had reached a “turning point,” and he asked the U.S. for more weapons and other assistance to turn the tide.
In a late-night video address, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy cast doubt on Russia’s stated decision to “drastically reduce” attacks around Kyiv and the northeast city of Chernihiv. He said Russian forces were building up in his country’s eastern Donbas regions in preparation for a major offensive there. Russia has made it clear that it will shift the focus of its “special military operation” to Donbas.
