Latest News from Russia’s War in Ukraine Live Updates:
The 694 Indian students who stayed in Sumy last night all left for Poltava (Ukraine) in buses, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri told PTI. The Russian-Ukrainian war has entered its second week and the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine has worsened as Russian forces intensified their bombardments and food, water, heating and medicine became increasingly scarce. . A silver lining emerged during the third round of talks between Kyiv and Moscow, with a senior Ukrainian official saying there had been minor, unspecified progress towards establishing evacuation corridors. Russia’s chief negotiator said he expects those corridors to start working on Tuesday. On the war front, Russian troops are said to have made significant progress in southern Ukraine, but stalled in some other areas, even as several countries discussed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s request to supply the fighter jets. . The UN human rights office reported 406 confirmed civilian deaths, but said the true number was much higher. The invasion also sent 1.7 million people fleeing Ukraine. Zelenskyy called for more punitive measures against Russia, including a global boycott of its oil exports, which are essential to its economy. In a show of collective bravery, the city of Irpin refused the Russian request to surrender. In retaliation, Russia threatened to cut off Europe’s natural gas supply by shutting down Nord Stream 1.
