“We have none of these,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister said on Tuesday.
Russian forces continue their efforts to push through Ukraine from multiple directions, while Ukrainians, led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, offer “fierce resistance,” according to U.S. officials.
The attack began on February 24, when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation.”
Russian forces moving from neighboring Belarus to Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, have moved closer to the city center in recent days despite resistance. Heavy shelling and missile attacks, many on civilian buildings, continue in Kiev, as well as major cities such as Kharkiv and Mariupol. Russia also bombed western cities for the first time this week, targeting Lviv and a military base near the Polish border.
Russia has been hit by sanctions from the United States, Canada and countries across Europe, targeting the Russian economy as well as Putin himself.
