20,000 Foreign Volunteers Have Signed Up to Fight in Ukraine; Zelensky Remains Defiant, Urges Ukrainians to Fight Back as Putin Threatens Country’s Statehood; Trump Tells GOP Donors US Must Act to Stop Russian 'crime against humanity'; NY Post: Russia-Ukraine News LATEST UPDATES, and related stories

20,000 foreign volunteers have signed up to fight in Ukraine: officials
Nearly 20,000 foreign volunteers have signed up to fight alongside Ukraine against invading Russian troops, Ukrainian officials said Sunday.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said at a news conference Sunday that the number of foreign applicants is “approaching 20,000,” the Washington Post reported.
“Experienced veterans and volunteers from 52 countries of the world come to us. This is their desire,” Kubela said, local media reported.
The influx of applications comes after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last week called on “citizens of the world” to join the Ukrainian defense and lifted visa requirements for foreign fighters.
In a video Thursday, Zelensky said around 16,000 fighters had volunteered to join the country’s efforts to fight against Russian forces.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry also put out a call for foreign volunteers on Facebook, asking for applicants with combat experience who have “citizenship other than Ukrainian, but … are standing with Ukraine against [the] Russian invasion.” --->READ MORE HERE
Zelensky remains defiant, urges Ukrainians to fight back as Putin threatens country’s statehood:
Russia continued its assault on Ukraine Sunday morning on the 11th day of its invasion, a day after a temporary ceasefire fell apart and Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened Ukrainian statehood.
Putin once again blamed Ukraine leaders for Russia’s violent invasion, threatening on Saturday that if they “continue to do what they are doing, they are calling into question the future of Ukrainian statehood.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky remained defiant, urging Ukrainians to pick up arms to fight back against Russian invaders.
“It is a special kind of heroism — to protest when your city is occupied,” Zelensky said. “Ukrainians in all of our cities that the enemy has entered — go on the offensive! You should take to the streets! You should fight!”
Thousands of people took to the streets to protest in Ukrainian cities occupied by Russian forces, including Kherson, a city in southern Ukraine. The city, which has a population of nearly 300,000, was the first to fall to Russian troops on March 2. --->READ MORE HERE
