Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours:
The Council of the EU has approved Ukraine and Moldova receiving candidate status
Yesterday, the Council of the European Union approved Ukraine and Moldova receiving candidate status.
This was announced on Twitter by the President of the Council Charles Michel.
"Bulgaria sends aid to Ukraine through Poland". In practice, the resigned Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov admitted this in an interview with the Guardian, given before the no-confidence vote this Wednesday.
His statement comes after a question about how Bulgaria's position on the war will change if it fails to form a new coalition.
Lavrov added that he would gladly accept the invitation of the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, to gather for talks on the territory of Belarus.
"I do not see any possibility for Ukraine to make any proposals, but we will not propose anything either. We presented our proposals a long time ago. Now the ball is on their side," Lavrov said.
