Here are the latest developments in the war in Ukraine:

– Ukraine tortures prisoners: Moscow –

Russia says it is investigating the torture of Russian soldiers held captive in Ukraine and recently released in a prisoner exchange.

The Russian investigative committee that investigates serious crimes says one of the 144 Russian soldiers who were replaced last week was linked to being treated by doctors without anesthetics and being “beaten” and “tortured with electricity” in captivity.

The soldier reportedly said he was left without food and water for days.

Scores of Ukrainian soldiers and citizens held captive by Russian forces have also claimed torture and inhumane treatment.

– NATO begins ratification by Sweden and Finland –

NATO is beginning the process of ratifying Sweden and Finland as the newest members of the 30-strong defense alliance.

“This is a good day for Finland and Sweden and a good day for NATO,” the coalition’s leader Jens Stoltenberg told reporters in a joint statement with the Swedish and Finnish foreign ministers.

“With 32 nations around the table, we will be even stronger and our people even safer as we face the greatest security crisis in decades,” he said.

– Cosmonauts welcome Russian gains –

Russian cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station congratulate Russian forces on their capture of eastern Ukraine’s Lugansk region by being photographed flying the flag of the region’s pro-Russian rebels.

The Russian space agency Roscosmos published the photo in the Telegram news network of Oleg Artemyev, Denis Matveyev and Sergei Korsakov holding the flag of the self-proclaimed separatist Lugansk People’s Republic.

“We celebrate on earth and in space,” Roscosmos said.

– Ukrainian wins “Nobel Prize in Mathematics” –

Ukraine’s Maryna Viazovska is only the second woman to be awarded the prestigious Fields Medal, the Nobel Prize in mathematics.

Viazovska, a 37-year-old mathematics professor from Kyiv, shared the prize with three other winners.

She accepted the award at a ceremony in Helsinki, which was set to replace Saint Petersburg as the congress venue after Russia invaded Ukraine at the end of February.

– Eyeing Fusion of Russian Metal Giants –

Russian mining company Nornickel chief Vladimir Potanin says he is ready to discuss a merger with aluminum giant Rusal to create a metals giant capable of withstanding the impact of Western sanctions.

Potanin told the Russian business newspaper RBK that he made the proposal to Rusal on Monday.

Potanin had always spoken out against a merger of the world market leader for nickel and palladium with Rusal, which already holds 25.25 percent in Nornickel.

But both companies have been hit by Western sanctions hitting Russia over its military campaign in Ukraine. Potanin also identified the challenges they face in making their businesses greener.
