Zelensky: Ukraine has no intention of surrendering

Ukraine is fighting in the Donbas region and “has no intention of surrendering.” This was stated by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, reports the BBC.

In an interview with CNN on Sunday, Zelensky rejected the idea of ​​allowing Moscow to take over Donbas and part of eastern Ukraine to end the conflict.

“Ukraine and its people are clear. We have no claims to foreign territories, but we will not give up ours,” Zelensky added.

When Russian President Vladimir Putin talks about the conquest of Donbas, he is referring to Ukraine’s old coal and steel region. What he means is the entire two major eastern regions, Luhansk and Donetsk, which stretch beyond Mariupol to the south to the northern border, the Ukrainian president added.

Another Russian general was killed

The deputy commander of the 8th Army of the Russian Armed Forces, Vladimir Petrovich Frolov, died in the war in Ukraine, the Russian agency TASS reported.

He was buried in St. Petersburg. The news was confirmed by the governor of the district Alexander Beglov.

The governor said that Frolov “sacrificed his life so that children, women, and elderly people in Donbas would not hear more bombings. In order not to wait for death anymore, and when they leave their home, not to say goodbye for the last time.”

But most of the shelling in Ukraine is from Russia. Several Russian generals and high-ranking military personnel were reported killed during the war.

It is unusual for such high-ranking officers to be endangered by getting so close to the battlefield, and Western sources believe they did it to gain control of operations that have been blocked in some areas.

Ukrainian Prime Minister: Mariupol has not fallen yet

Other Ukrainian forces in the southern port of Mariupol continue to fight and oppose Russia’s demand for capitulation, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmihal said today, Reuters reported.

“The city has not yet fallen,” Schmihal told ABC’s “This Week” program, adding that Ukrainian troops continue to control parts of the city.

“So there is no full control of Mariupol by Russian forces,” Schmihal said.

Schmihal said he and Ukrainian financial officials would seek more financial help this week during meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington.

“We need more money to fulfill our humanitarian and social obligations,” Schmihal said. “Only half of our economy is working now. That’s why we want financial support.”

Schmihal added that Ukraine currently has a budget deficit of about $ 5 billion a month.

A Spanish village makes an unusual gesture to Ukraine

A Spanish village demonstrates solidarity with Ukraine with an unusual gesture. For the days of Catholic Holy Week, the village was renamed Fuentes de Andalusia of Ukraine and put up a large sign.

The village is in southern Spain, east of Seville, with a population of just over 7,000 people. The people there changed the names of their squares and called them Kyiv, Odesa, and Mariupol.

The goal is to raise awareness of the conflict, a local explained. Fuentes also plans to receive refugees from Ukraine.
