Russia Set to Annex Occupied Lands as Ukraine Continues Onslaught

Officials from Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine announced plans for Russia to annex four regions in the east and south of the country, while Moscow paved the way for wider mobilization and threatened to attack NATO as the Kremlin grappled with Ukraine’s rapid advance.

Russian-controlled parts of Ukraine’s Donetsk, Luhansk and Kherson regions have announced they will hold three-day votes on joining Russia starting Friday, Moscow’s latest effort to cement its grip on territory that took months to capture but now faces losing to Ukrainian forces. Another region, Zaporizhzhia, did not specify a date for its vote.
