Ukraine’s government has repeated it will not accept any cease-fire that would require giving up territory to Moscow. Nevertheless, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has stressed that only a diplomatic solution will bring a definitive end to the conflict.
On the battlefield, Russia’s offensive to capture the Donbas grinds on, with shelling continuing along the front line. Russian forces have intensified their efforts to surround Severodonetsk, the main city still held by Ukraine in the Luhansk province.
The war in Ukraine is also likely to dominate the agenda of the World Economic Forum getting underway in Davos, Switzerland. This year there will be no Russian delegation. And in another snub, a Ukrainian businessman is using Moscow’s former residence in Davos to stage an exhibition on reported Russian war crimes in Ukraine.
