HeadlineFeb 28, 2022

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is now in its fifth day. Ukraine is demanding an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of Russian troops as the Health Ministry reports the civilian death toll has mounted to 352 people, including 14 children. Ukrainian and Russian delegations are meeting at the Belarus border as fighting rages on. This is Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky speaking Sunday.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “They choose a tactic on purpose that is aimed against the people’s affection and anything else that makes life simply normal — power plants, hospitals, kindergartens, housing. Everything is under fire every day.”
