Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

Russia Bombs Odessa Apartment Building & Five Train Stations

HeadlineApr 25, 2022

Fighting continued in Ukraine over the weekend despite calls for a truce to mark Orthodox Easter. In the Ukrainian port city of Odessa, at least eight people died in a reported Russian military strike on an apartment building. Earlier today, Russia bombed five train stations in western Ukraine. Russia is also continuing to bombard a steel plant in the besieged city of Mariupol, where Ukrainian fighters and civilians are holed up. On Sunday, an Orthodox Ukrainian priest condemned the ongoing violence.

Father Feodosiy: “They are attacking. Unfortunately, as we were finishing our Easter Mass, we suddenly heard air raid sirens. It is tragic that people who call themselves Christians allow themselves to do such things. They don’t even stop on the biggest celebration in the world: the resurrection of Christ.”
