Russia's Putin Annexes Four Ukrainian Territories

Ukrainian forces kept up the pressure on the beleaguered Russian army, retaking areas in the south and the east and chipping away with each passing day at the territory President Vladimir Putin claimed to annex. 

Ukrainian forces pressed through Russian defensive lines in the southern region of Kherson, the General Staff in Kyiv said on Twitter. They also liberated several small towns in Luhansk -- a region still mostly controlled by Russia -- according to Ukraine’s local governor, Serhiy Haiday.
