The latest updates on the Russian-Ukrainian war – The Washington Post

The United States is pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to reconsider his stance against talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Washington Post reports. The effort is intended as a means to maintain international support, not necessarily to encourage negotiations between warring nations.

Meanwhile, Iran admitted publicly for the first time that it had provided Russia with deadly drones – although, it said, before the Kremlin’s full-scale invasion began in February. Zelenski called Tehran’s statement a “recognition” after several weeks of attacks by Iran’s Shahed drones.

Here’s the latest on the war and its effects around the world.

Russia revokes citizenship of climate advocate: Climate activist Arshak Makichyan, 28, who fled Russia to Berlin in March after the invasion of Ukraine, is no longer Russian, the government says. A Moscow court decided to strip Makichyan, along with his father and brother – who both remain in Russia – of their citizenship, in what appears to be compensation for his public anti-war statements.

Makichyan, who is Armenian by birth, immigrated to Russia as a baby in 1995 and only has a Russian passport, meaning that decision has made him effectively stateless, reports Francesca Ebel.
