Ukraine war will have no winner: UN

26

The United Nations said Friday there would be no victor from Russia s invasion of Ukraine as the conflict entered its 100th day and Moscow s forces pressed deeper into the eastern Donbas region.

“This war has and will have no winner. Rather, we have witnessed for 100 days what is lost: lives, homes, jobs and prospects,” Amin Awad, Assistant Secretary-General and United Nations Crisis Coordinator for Ukraine, said in a statement. The milestone came as Kyiv announced Moscow was now in control of a fifth of Ukrainian territory, including Crimea and parts of Donbas seized in 2014.

Russia s invasion, which began on February 24, saw Moscow s troops first attempt a blitz on Kyiv before relinquishing control of area around the capital and Ukraine s second city Kharkiv in the north east.-AFP
