Ukraine War

Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to deliver his first live speech since February 24, when Russia invaded Ukraine. Kremlin-watchers have been left baffled by the last-minute cancellation of a major announcement by Vladimir Putin aimed at turning the tide of war following weeks of embarassing setbacks. Sergei Markov, a Russian political scientist who used ot be a close adviser to President Putin, said the address was delayed until tomorrow. Earlier in the day, four regions occupied by the invaders announced plans to stage referendums over the coming week on whether they should become part of Russia.
