Live: Ukraine must give up part of the east


2:16 a.m.: Ukraine says it was forced to cede some territory in the east

Ukraine said it had been forced to cede an area in the east of the country over a Russian offensive, and the head of NATO’s military alliance said Moscow must not win the war.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky this week described the pressure under his armed forces in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine as “hell”. He spoke of fierce fighting around the town of Avdiivka and the fortified village of Pisky, where Kiev has in recent days acknowledged the “partial success” of its Russian enemy.

12:29 PM: Canada sends military trainers to UK to educate Ukrainian troops

Canada is sending military trainers to the United Kingdom to teach Ukrainians how to fight against invading Russian forces, Defense Minister Anita Anand said on Wednesday.

Up to 225 members of the Canadian Forces will eventually be stationed in the UK for an initial four-month period, Anand said. They will work with colleagues from Britain, the Netherlands and New Zealand to train Ukrainian troops in the basics of soldiers.

“This is an all-hands-on-deck moment for allies and partners who support Ukraine,” Anand said in a telephone interview with The The Switzerland Times.

A previous Canadian military training mission in Ukraine was suspended just weeks before the invasion.
