Heavy fighting in Ukraine continues. Firing by Russian rockets was reported from the city of Zaporizhia over the weekend, among others. According to the regional governor, one person was killed. Ukrainian President Zelenskyy said in his evening video address on Sunday that the front line currently stretches over a total of more than two thousand kilometers. “This concerns the Donetsk region and our Kharkiv region. And also the Kherson region, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia. We have achieved positive results in several directions. And whatever happens in Russia this week – whatever steps the terrorist government plans. Whether politically or militarily – the task of our state, the task of Ukraine, cannot be changed. We are fighting for life and freedom for all Ukrainians.” The votes on the annexation of Ukrainian regions to Russia, which Ukraine and the West have criticized as bogus referendums, could keep the Russian parliament busy this week. Russian news agencies, citing unnamed sources, reported that the Duma could consider draft laws on the incorporation of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhia oblasts as early as Thursday.
