The situation seems to be still in the upper hands of Vladimir Putin

Kyiv(ANN)-Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he called once more for further weapons deliveries from Germany in a phone call with Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Wednesday. “On the topic of defense, I stressed that we are waiting for an anti-missile defense system from Germany,” Zelenskyy said in his daily video address on Wednesday evening.
Western countries and the US allies are struggling with the problems caused by Ukraine, as the situation seems to be still in the upper hands of Vladimir Putin, after he held a referendum in four regions of Ukraine, where 99% voted to become a part of Russia, and this result has greatly angered Western countries.
The White House expressed dismay at the so-called referendum held by Russian forces in the occupied regions of Ukraine. Officials installed by Moscow said that 99 percent of local residents said “YES” to the inclusion of the Russian Federation. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called the vote a violation of international law.
At the unfinished meeting of the United Nations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that those four regions will be fully protected by Russia if it joins Moscow.
Lavrov told the UN: Ukraine’s annexed territories will have Russia’s ‘full protection’, the foreign minister said in a keynote speech at the UN General Assembly this week.
On the other hand, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock strongly condemned the so-called referendum on the territory of Ukraine occupied by Russia. During the “fake referendum,” Baerbock said, “people were forced out of their homes or jobs” at gunpoint “to cast their votes in glass ballot boxes.”
Annalena Baerbock, said that Germany will never recognize the results of the Moscow-organized vote on Russia’s accession to Ukraine.
“If Russia chooses to shield itself from accountability here in the House, we will then look to the United Nations General Assembly to send an unspoken message to Moscow,” said US envoy Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who called the referendum a sham.
Western forces are transporting heavy weapons and missiles to Ukraine, whose people are struggling with the problems caused by the war, although the US and its Allies transporting weapons to Ukraine has not changed the war.
As the Russians face their invasion of Ukraine, the aid supply of food and medicine is being distributed to the people of the regions under their control, which welcomed the Russian army.
