Ukraine "determined" to liberate all territory after russian annexation declaration – bbc news

BBC News published this video item, entitled “Ukraine “determined” to liberate all territory after Russian annexation declaration – BBC News” – below is their description.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky said the country remains “determined” to liberate all of its territory after Russian president Vladimir Putin declared the annexation of four occupied regions.

In a speech in Moscow, the Russian leader claimed citizens in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as in Kherson and Zaporizhzhia in the south had voted to be “with their people, their motherland”.

Mr Zelensky has vowed to liberate all Ukrainian territories, including Crimea – Ukraine’s southern peninsula annexed by Russia in 2014. And he also ruled out any further negotiations with Mr Putin.
