White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday that by the Russians’ definition, they have already lost the war. “They have not taken over Ukraine,” she said. “President Putin is not going to be marching down the streets of Kyiv. They will not own the territorial integrity and sovereignty of this country. They have not divided NATO.”
Britain announced additional sanctions against Russia. These sanctions aim at banning the country from doing business with management consultants, accounting and public relations firms in the U.K.
Asset freezes and travel bans were imposed on Russian journalists working for state-owned media the U.K. accuses of spreading propaganda.
The U.K. is also sending a military support package worth almost $400 million to Ukraine. The package will include electronic warfare equipment, a radar system, GPS jamming equipment, heavy-lift supply drones and night-vision devices.
The Russian military said Wednesday it used missiles to destroy electric power facilities at five railway stations across Ukraine. Artillery and aircraft also struck troop strongholds and fuel and ammunition depots, the Kremlin said.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed as “nonsense” media reports that President Vladimir Putin might formally declare war May 9, when Russia celebrates the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, and announce a broader mobilization.
