Russia halts nuclear weapons communication with US; Spain sending tanks soon: Live Ukraine war live updates

The ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is showing no sign of slowing down, as Russia has reportedly halted nuclear weapons communication with the United States and Spain is preparing to send tanks to the conflict zone.

According to a statement from the Russian Ministry of Defense, communication between the two countries' nuclear forces has been halted to reduce the risk of further escalation. The communication, which was established as part of a Cold War agreement, was used to reduce the chances of accidental nuclear war.

Meanwhile, Spain has announced that it is sending tanks and other military equipment to Ukraine to help the country defend itself against Russian aggression. The Spanish government said the tanks would be used to protect the country's borders and to provide a deterrent against further Russian incursions.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Security Council has held an emergency meeting to discuss the deteriorating situation in Ukraine. The council is expected to discuss a resolution that would impose further sanctions on Russia for its actions in the region.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has been escalating since 2014, when Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula and began supporting separatist forces in Eastern Ukraine. In recent weeks, the conflict has become even more volatile, with both sides accusing each other of escalating the violence.

The crisis has also caused tension in the West, with some European countries expressing concern over the deteriorating situation. The United States has urged both sides to de-escalate the conflict and to engage in meaningful dialogue to find a peaceful resolution.

As the conflict continues, the international community is watching closely to see if Russia and Ukraine can find a way to peacefully resolve the conflict. For now, though, the war appears to be intensifying, with no end in sight.
