Russia Ukraine News Live Updates: ‘Stop Playing’ with Russia, End the War; Zelensky tells West

President Volodymyr Zelensky urged the West to stop playing games with Russia and impose tougher sanctions on Moscow to end its “senseless war” in Ukraine, adding that his country would remain independent, the only question being how price.

Zelenskyy’s criticism of the West has intensified in recent days as the European Union slowly moves towards a possible Russian oil embargo and thousands of Russian forces attempt to encircle two key eastern cities of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk.

Three months after its invasion of Ukraine, Russia has abandoned its assault on the capital Kyiv and is trying to consolidate control of the industrial region of eastern Donbass, where it has supported a separatist revolt since 2014.
