Russische invasie: Situatie dag 345
February 3, 2023 - President Zelensky has called for 10th round of EU sanctions on Russia, saying the pace has slowed recently, while EU leaders in Kyiv are seeking to calm expectations of fast-track membership to the bloc.
Poland’s prime minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, said he is open to supplying F-16 jets to Ukraine in co-ordination with NATO allies, but UK prime minister Rishi Sunak warned that training could take months if not years.
Ukraine’s foreign minister has claimed that Russia may have up to 500,000 troops, mobilised last September, at the border ready for an expected offensive on the anniversary of the invasion in February. Mobile internet in occupied Luhansk was disabled to disguise Russian troop movements and force concentrations which have in the past been revealed by Ukrainians in the area.
