The update comes as Vladimir Putin addresses a huge military parade in Red Square in Moscow on Victory Day.

The annual event commemorates the defeat of Nazi Germany at the hands of the Soviet Union in World War II.

The Russian President used his speech to claim Russian troops in eastern Ukraine were “defending the motherland”.

He also said the “special military operation” in Ukraine was necessary and was provoked by the West.

However, he did not make any major announcement concerning the invasion, as many had speculated.

Some 65,000 personnel, 2,400 items of military hardware and over 400 aircraft are taking part in today’s parades, which are taking place across 28 Russian cities.

But Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said yesterday in his own Victory Day speech that Russia was repeating Nazi atrocities.

He also denounced heavy shelling carried out by Russia in eastern Ukraine and said a strike on a school building turned shelter in Luhansk Oblast killed 60.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has called on Putin to end the invasion of Ukraine immediately.
