DIRECT. War in Ukraine: first vote of the American Congress in favor of a 40 billion dollars aid for kyiv

Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to « extend » the conflict to Transnistria, a region of Moldova that seceded in 1990, US intelligence chief Avril Haines said on Tuesday. On April 22, a Russian general, Rustam Minnekayev, had also argued that « control of southern Ukraine is also a corridor to Transnistria, where there are also cases of oppression of the population Russian-speaking”. However, the defense of Russian speakers is one of Moscow’s justifications for the current war. In addition to the Crimea annexed in 2014, Russian troops occupy much of southern Ukraine, including the regional capital of Kherson.
