It’s MORE than 3 weeks and counting!
The Russian’s make a little progress….
The Ukraineians hold on….
Lot’s of building in demolished….
Putin isolated and dragging his country down….
The Ukraine forces getting a reinforcement of weapons….
And their women on the frontlines….
Oh, and the Russian President gave the Turkish President his demands for a peace agreement with the Ukraine….
In the besieged southern city of Mariupol, Ukrainian officials said roughly 1,300 people remained trapped in the basement of a theater struck by Russia on Wednesday. Around 130 people survived and were able to leave what had been serving as a civilian shelter, according to Ludmyla Denisova, the Ukrainian parliament’s human rights commissioner. Invading Russian troops have cut off badly needed supplies and sowed terror with apparent attacks on a children’s hospital, a university and other civilian targets.
In the absence of major territorial advances, Russia is increasingly relying on sieges and unguided “dumb” bombs to wear down cities and civilians. The United Nations has confirmed 816 civilian deaths, including the deaths of 59 children, while warning that the real tolls are almost certainly far higher.
As concerns mounted that Beijing would offer military equipment and aid to Moscow, President Biden and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, spoke for nearly two hours Friday. China made a statement afterward that did not mention any actions that it might take to promote peace in Ukraine.
