Live news updates: Vinai Kumar Saxena will be the new Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, said a statement by the President’s office. 

Anil Baijal resigned from the post last week, citing "personal reasons". The Lieutenant Governor is the centre’s representative to Delhi. Baijal and Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government clashed over policy issues multiple times until a Supreme Court judgement in 2018 that spelled out the powers of the LG and the state government.

"The President of India has been pleased to appoint Shri Vinai Kumar Saxena to be the Lt Governor of National Capital Territory of Delhi with effect from the date he assumes charge of his office," read the communique from the President's office.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russia’s economy should be shut off from the world and invited global investors to shift resources into Ukraine to help rebuild the country from the devastation wrought by Vladimir Putin’s war. 

“This is really the moment when it is decided whether brute force will rule the world,” the Ukrainian leader said in a keynote address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Monday. If force does win out, “there is no need for further meetings in Davos,” he said.
