And Moscow is still protesting over the delivery of Western weapons to Ukraine (ANSA)     "No other nation wants peace more than Ukraine. But peace at any cost is an illusion. The Ukrainian people will accept peace only if they ensure the complete cessation of Russian aggression, the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory and the restoration of the territorial integrity of our state within internationally recognized borders": said Ukrainian Foreign Minister


    "No other nation wants peace more than Ukraine. But peace at any cost is an illusion. The Ukrainian people will accept peace only if they ensure the complete cessation of Russian aggression, the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory and the restoration of the territorial integrity of our state within internationally recognized borders": said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba speaking at an event on the war in his country linked to the second (virtual) summit for democracy wanted by Joe Biden. 

   "I want to be clear, Russia must withdraw from every square meter of Ukrainian territory. There should be no misinterpretation of what


the word withdrawal implies," added Kuleba, speaking for President Zelensky, who was busy visiting a region on the front of the conflict.

"Although Russia seeks to destroy Ukraine - he continued - its aggression does not concern only Ukraine. Russia also aims to destroy the world order based on international law and the Charter of the United Nations. Our children and Our daughters not only fought for the future, but also defended our common democratic values ​​at the cost of their lives. In this fight, we are defending


the entire democratic world."

   For his part, Vitaliy Barabash, head of the city's military administration, told the Guardian that the Ukrainian city of Avdiivka "is about to


be wiped off the face of the Earth" due to intensified Russian shelling. Russian forces have recently made gradual gains on the flanks of Avdiivka, and the Ukrainian military said last week that the city could become a "second Bakhmut". About 2,000 civilians remain in Avdiivka, a city in the Donetsk region about 90km southwest of besieged Bakhmut, according to officials. The city had a pre-war population of more than 30,000. As of Sunday, public services in the cities will begin to be closed as "every day more and more areas are bombed and destroyed," said Barabash.

   And Moscow's protests continue over the shipment of arms to Ukraine by Western countries.

Russia's defense ministry said it shot down a US GLSDB rocket, the first confirmation that the munitions had been delivered to Ukraine, which sees them as crucial to its upcoming counter-offensive.

"The anti-aircraft defense shot down 18 Himars system rockets and one GLSDB guided rocket," the ministry said in its daily statement on bombs with a range of up to 150 km, promised to Kiev by the United States in early February


   In addition, the three Leopard 2 tanks promised by Portugal are already on the territory of Ukraine, the Defense Ministry of Lisbon informed Portugal.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov had already denounced that Germany plays an active role in "pumping weapons to Ukraine" and this "increases its direct and indirect involvement in the conflict", after the delivery of 18 Leopard 2s to the armed forces of Kiev.
