Zelenskyy pushes back against Russia’s Victory Day parades 

Demonstrators hold posters during an anti-war protest in Tbilisi, Georgia, Sunday, May 8, 2022, a day before Russia celebrates WW2 Victory Day  

At a parade commemorating the victory over Germany in the Second World World, President Vladimir Putin cast Moscow’s military action in Ukraine as a forced response to Western policies. However, despite some fears, he didn’t announce a scaling up of Russian military operations, or a general mobilisation.  

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, meanwhile, said that Ukraine will not let Russia “own the victory over Nazism” in 1945, highlighting his own country’s role in it.

Last night the world’s attention turned to Bilohorivka, a small village in Ukraine, where more than 60 people may have been killed in an apparent Russian bombing of a school used as a shelter by Ukrainians fleeing the war. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned the reported attack.
