Eastern and southern Ukrainian districts under Russian control have declared they will vote this week to join Russia. The most recent event, which follows recent military victories by Ukraine, may pave the way for a war escalation. The elections will be held on Friday in the areas of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia, which is mostly under Russian influence.

Numerous regions of Ukraine have plans to organise referendums on joining Russia, according to officials backed by Russia. The threat of “fake” ballots has been denounced by Ukraine, who have denounced the approaching elections as a ruse to justify Russia’s invasion.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged military equipment manufacturers in his country to increase production and supply levels for Russian forces. Putin was also scheduled to address the nation in a significant speech on Tuesday, but he abruptly changed the date to Wednesday.

Olaf Scholz, the chancellor of Germany, stated during a speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York that Putin must understand that he cannot win the war.

According to Reuters, Scholz cited the chancellor as stating, “This is why we will not accept any peace imposed by Russia, and this is why Ukraine must be ready to fend off Russia’s aggression.”

Germany has provided Ukraine with significant support, but it has come under fire for not providing the nation with more of its cutting-edge armaments.
