The ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis deepened after President Vladimir Putin recognised two Russian separatist-held regions in Ukraine as independent on Monday.

This led US President Joe Biden to sign an executive order blocking trade and investment in parts of Ukraine that have been recognised as independent by his Russian counterpart.

Russia recognised the independence of breakaway regions Donetsk and Luhansk, which has increased the possibility of war.
