Vladimir Putin visits Ukrainian territories that have been taken over by Russia

Reportedly, President Vladimir Putin visited Ukraine's Kherson and Luhansk regions, where he received reports from military commanders.

The Kremlin released a video showing Putin telling commanders it was important for him to hear their opinions and to "exchange information.

Kherson in eastern Ukraine and Luhansk in southern Ukraine are two regions Putin claimed to have annexed last September, in moves rejected altogether by the UN General Assembly.

Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak, clearly referring to Putin's visit, tweeted Tuesday about the Russian leader visiting occupied and destroyed territories to indulge in the crimes of his minions for the last time.

Also Tuesday, foreign ministers from the G7 countries issued a joint statement calling Russia's invasion of Ukraine a "serious violation of international law" and demanding Russia immediately withdraw its troops unconditionally. The G7 ministers also pledged to freeze Russian assets in their jurisdictions "until there is a settlement of the conflict that addresses Russia's violations of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity."
