Russia planning to annex more Ukrainian territory, White House says


The U.S. has new intelligence that Russia is planning to annex more Ukrainian territory, the Biden administration said Tuesday.

Kirby said the U.S. would never recognize what he called purportedly annexed territories belonging to Russia.
