Live Updates On Russia-Ukraine: Meta Debunks Two Disinformation Efforts On Social Media

Despite warnings from the US and the international community, Ukraine’s military started a long-awaited invasion of its ex-Soviet neighbor early Thursday, striking it from many directions.

The attacks on Thursday came after weeks of rising tensions in the region. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that he was recognizing the independence of two Russia-backed separatist enclaves in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region: the self-proclaimed People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, in a furious hour-long address.

Russia has accused Ukraine of inflaming the conflict, and it has maintained its demand that Ukraine never join the transatlantic military alliance.

A team from Ukraine has arrived in Russia for discussions.

The Ukrainian team headed to Russia for negotiations arrived at the Belarus-Ukraine border on Monday morning, where the conference will take place.

The essential topic for the discussions, according to Ukraine, is a quick ceasefire and the departure of Russian soldiers.

Russia has shown an interest in discussing Ukraine’s adoption of “neutral status.”

The Russian delegation’s leader has stated that the two sides will meet in approximately an hour. They’re meeting near Chernobyl, on the Pripyat River.

The Ukrainian delegation comprises Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov, the leader of Zelenskyy’s parliamentary party, as well as presidential advisors and legislators.

Officials from Russia’s Foreign and Defense Ministries, as well as the presidential administration, are part of the trip.

In a phone call on Sunday, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko agreed to the discussions.

Throughout the night, fighting raged as Russia sought to advance and blasted Ukrainian soldiers.
