In March, people in Russia will vote for their president — and in the annexed territories of Ukraine. In Kiev, four people were injured by the debris during the night. Meanwhile, London sends mine-sweeping ships to the Black Sea.

DRussian officials have no problem holding presidential elections in the Moscow-occupied part of Ukraine. According to the Interfax news agency, Russia’s Central Election Commission decided on Monday that presidential elections will go ahead despite the imposition of martial law in four regions: Kherson, Donetsk, Luhansk and Zaporizhia.

Russia annexed territories in violation of international law. The election commission said the decision was taken after consultation with the military and secret service, as well as the leadership of Moscow-designated regions.

Last week, the Federation Council, the upper house of the Russian parliament, set the date for the presidential election as March 15-17, 2024. Putin has already announced that he will run for a fifth term. The Kremlin leader has been in power in Russia for almost a quarter of a century.
