Summary

By Travis Caldwell, Seán Federico-O'Murchú, Jack Guy, Sana Noor Haq and Hafsa Khalil, CNNFrom CNN StaffUkrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Kyiv is ready for an imminent prisoner exchange with Russia, and called on allies to continue to put economic and political pressure on Moscow.Meanwhile, a British minister has warned that the number of deaths from global grain and food shortages due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine "could be even greater than the lives lost in the war directly." Here are the latest developments:Zelensky addresses World Economic Forum: The Ukrainian President told an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos that Kyiv is prepared for a prisoner exchange with Russia "even tomorrow." Speaking via video on Monday, Zelensky said "the exchange of people" is a "very political decision that depends on the support of many states." He urged world leaders to "keep the political pressure" on Russia in "any way they can," calling for increased business closures, oil embargoes and economic sanctions. The news comes two months after US President Joe Biden announced Colombia would be designated as a major non-NATO ally, strengthening security and economic ties between the pair.Kherson military base request: The pro-Moscow authorities of Ukraine's Kherson region will request a Russian military base in the region, Russian state news agencies reported Tuesday. She urged the international community to come together to counter what she called Moscow’s "blackmail."Her comments come hours after UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said deaths from food shortages due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine "could be even greater than the lives lost in the war directly." Shapps said in a television interview Tuesday that he met with his Ukrainian counterpart Oleksandr Kubrakov last week in Germany to discuss how infrastructure could be put in place to ensure the grain leaves Ukraine.Supplies from Russia and Ukraine account for nearly 30% of global wheat trade.Sanctions against Russia imposed by the EU, US and other Western countries are "draining Putin’s war machine," Ursula von der Leyen told the World Economic Forum in Davos, as the bloc continues to negotiate even harsher measures. However, US and European allies have been struggling with plans to get vital grain supplies out of Ukraine.From CNN’s Sophie Jeong in Hong KongOutgoing President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte has criticized his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for killing innocent civilians in Ukraine.Duterte said that, while both he and Putin have been called killers, the two men are different."A lot of people are saying that Putin and I are the same because we kill people," said Duterte during a public address on Monday night, according to the state-run Philippines News Agency (PNA). Russia has denied allegations of war crimes and claims its forces do not target civilians, but CNN journalists on the ground in Ukraine have seen firsthand evidence of atrocities at multiple locations across the country.And on Monday a 21-year-old Russian soldier was sentenced to life in prison for killing an unarmed 62-year-old civilian man in Ukraine's first war crimes trial since Russia's invasion.From CNN's Irina Morgan, Alex Stambaugh and Nathan HodgeRussian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow must cease any dependency on the West and that it is instead strengthening ties with China.
