As the Russia-Ukraine war enters its 265th day, we take a look at the main events.
Here is the situation as it is on Tuesday, November 15.
- Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told the G20 summit in a virtual speech that now was the time to stop Russia’s war in his country “fairly and on the basis of the United Nations Charter and international law.” .
G20 leaders are considering a draft resolution in which most members strongly condemn the war in Ukraine, stressing that it was exacerbating fragilities in the global economy, according to reports.
- In a pre-summit meeting in the Indonesian city of Bali, US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed that nuclear war should never be fought while the war in Ukraine continues.
- Russian President Vladimir Putin will not attend the G20 summit and instead sent the foreign minister.
- The United States believes that Russian troops carried out a relatively orderly withdrawal from Kherson, a senior US military official said, in contrast to some of the more chaotic withdrawals earlier this year.
- Ukrainian officials said utility companies were working to restore infrastructure mined by fleeing Russian forces, and most homes in Kherson still had no electricity or water.
- Fighting remains intense in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region and south along the Dnieper river, Ukrainian officials said.
- “We are making progress,” Zelenskyy told reporters in Kherson after addressing troops in front of the administration building on the main square. “We are ready for peace, peace for our entire country.”
- The UN General Assembly passed a resolution saying that Russia is responsible for reparations in Ukraine. The resolution is not binding, but it does carry political weight.
- The United States has targeted Russian military supply chains, imposing sanctions on 14 individuals and 28 entities that it said were part of a technology acquisition network to support the invasion of Ukraine.
- The heads of the US and Russian intelligence services met in Turkey and discussed the consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and raised the issue of US prisoners in Russia, a White House official said. The Kremlin confirmed the talks, but did not immediately provide further details.
