Ukraine-Russia news – live: Putin’s new offensive has already begun, warns Nato chief

Vladimir Putin‘s fresh and long-anticipated offensive in Ukraine has already begun, Nato cheif Jens Stoltenberg has declared.

“We see no sign whatsoever that (Russian) president (Vladimir) Putin is preparing for peace (…) What we see is president Putin and Russia still wanting to control Ukraine”, Nato’s secretary-general told reporters on Monday.

“We see how they are sending more troops, more weapons, more capabilities,” he added, almost one year after Moscow launched the war.

It comes after Ramzan Kadyrov, leader of the Russian region of Chechnya, said in an interview that Moscow would win the war by the end of this year.

He also told interviewer Olga Skabeyeva, who hosts a stridently pro-war chat show: “If we sit down at the negotiating table with Zelensky, yes, I think that’s wrong.”

It comes after Mr Putin’s forces unleashed fatal missile attacks on five areas across Kherson, causing damage to the railway and preventing trains from Kyiv and Lviv reaching the city, reports say.
