Russia-Ukraine war live updates: Infrastructure struck across Ukraine; fear for civilians left in Mariupol
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky urged global companies to exit Russia, saying on Tuesday that entities that remain in the country are “directly supporting that war machine, the terrorist Russian Federation war machine.”
The Ukrainian leader, whose remarks were interpreted live into English, spoke via video link to the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit in London. “Leaving the Russian market, that is a must,” he said.
Antony Radakin, chief of the British defense staff, told the summit he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin showed traits of an autocratic leader who was becoming increasingly isolated. “Their decision making rarely improves, and their decision making gets worse,” Radakin said, adding that the Russian campaign was marked by “shocking intelligence failure” and “incredible arrogance.”
