Hosted live by Luc Vinogradoff and Anna Villechenon

  • In the East. Civilians fled Kramatorsk, Sloviansk and most of the cities in the east of the country under Ukrainian control before the announced offensive by Russian forces, and especially despite heavy bombing. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Army fears that if the city of Mariupol falls, it will be the first target of the Russians “to seize Popasna and launch an offensive” […] to reach the administrative borders of the Donetsk region”.
  • In Mariupol. The strategic port of the Sea of ​​Azov, relentlessly besieged and bombed for more than 40 days, will undoubtedly fall into Russian hands in the coming days. The city’s mayor Vadym Boichenko said the number of civilians killed would exceed 21,000.
  • In the Kyiv region. Since the withdrawal of the Russian army, life in the Ukrainian capital is slowly returning to normal, but to the atrocities already documented new bodies are discovered every day. Anatoly Fedoruk, the city’s mayor, said authorities had so far found the bodies of 403 people they believed had been killed by Russian forces.
  • The United States does not “can confirm” recent accusations of the use of chemical weapons in Mariupol. The United States reported“reliable information” on the possibility of Russia using“chemical agents” in his offensive to take the city of Mariupol. However, the head of American diplomacy, Antony Blinken, did not declare Washington “can confirm” recent allegations made tuesday by the Ukrainian Azov Regiment
  • Vladimir Putin: The invasion of Ukraine was “unavoidable”the negotiations are at a standstill. The Russian president appeared publicly outside Moscow for the first time since the start of the war. “The military operation”according to the official terminology of the Kremlin, and the clash with Ukrainian troops “anti-Russian” was, he said, inevitable.
  • Volodymyr Zelensky calls for more EU sanctions. In Lithuania, a former Soviet republic that is now a member of the European Union and NATO, the Ukrainian president criticized insufficient sanctions,”because Europe still favors cooperation, trade and the status quo”
  • The president of Germany wanted to visit Kiev, the Ukrainian government did not “not wanted”. Frank-Walter Steinmeier said the Ukrainian government did not want him to come to Kiev. “I was ready to do it, but apparently, and I must take note, it was not wanted in Kiev”he said.
  • The EU continues to discuss new sanctions. It is not yet known what this sixth package of sanctions will entail, but unlike the previous five, which were all passed unanimously, a consensus this time is harder to find.
  • More than 4.6 million Ukrainian refugees since the start of the war† Among these men, women and children, more than half went to Poland and stayed there or chose to move on to another country. In all, nearly twelve million people, more than a quarter of Ukraine’s population, have had to leave their homes, either by crossing the border to reach neighboring countries or seeking refuge elsewhere in Ukraine. the UN said.
