As Ukraine marks 31 years of independence from the Russia-dominated Soviet Union on Wednesday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said, Kyiv will fight Russia 'until the end' and will not be making "any concession or compromise". He added, "We don't care what army you have, we only care about our land. We will fight for it until the end."

BJP's Vijay Kumar Sinha on Wednesday resigned as the Speaker of the Bihar Assembly ahead of a floor test to prove the majority of the 'Mahagathbandhan' alliance government led by the chief minister Nitish Kumar. JD(U)'s Narendra Narayan Yadav, whose name was recommended by Sinha, will chair the floor test now. Sinha's resignation came after a no-confidence motion against him was moved by the MLAs of the ruling coalition.

Twitter's Indian-origin CEO Parag Agrawal has lashed out at the company's former head of security, Peiter 'Mudge' Zatko, saying his false claims are "riddled with inconsistencies and inaccuracies, and presented without important context". Agrawal came out in the open on bots controversy after a long time, as Zatko who was fired by the company in January this year over 'poor performance' claimed that lied about the actual number of bots on its platform and misled federal regulators about users' data safety.
