Civilians remain trapped in Mariupol, Ukraine retakes villages | Ukraine latest

Russian forces have been hindering evacuation efforts and preventing humanitarian supplies from reaching the besieged city, Petro Andryushchenko, an aide to the mayor of Mariupol, said on Friday. The statement came despite an assurance from Russian Major General Mikhail Mizintsev that people would be able to leave. “The city remains closed to entry and very dangerous to exit with personal transport,” Andryushchenko said in a Telegram post. “In addition, since yesterday the occupiers have categorically not allowed any humanitarian aid — even in small quantities — into the city.” About 5,000 civilians have been killed in the city since the Russian invasion began, according to Ukrainian authorities. It’s estimated that tens of thousands of civilians remain trapped in the city. The International Committee of the Red Cross and the United Nations said that they will make a renewed attempt on Friday to help the city’s residents flee. Tens of thousands of people remain trapped in Mariupol with scant food, water and other supplies. “Russia gave an ultimatum a while ago saying that the Ukrainian soldiers either had to give up or they would continue to pound the city,” said DW correspondent Amien Essif, who is currently in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv. “Russia has said very clearly that they will not continue to exacerbate this humanitarian crisis until Ukraine surrenders, perhaps hoping that the international community will see what’s happening there and encourage Ukraine to surrender that city,” he added. Essif noted the strategic importance of the city for both sides as holding the city will allow them to control the Sea of Azov. Stressing that it’s very hard to know what’s happening in that city, he underlined that the fighting “can go on for a long time.” “Either Russia wins a complete and total victory with the total destruction of the city and most of the civilian lives there or Ukrainians will pull off an unlikely victory and maintain control of that city, hopefully avoiding the worst.”

Ukrainian troops have retaken the villages of Sloboda and Lukashivka to the south of Chernihiv and located along main supply routes between the city and Kyiv, British military intelligence said on Friday. “Ukraine has also continued to make successful but limited counter attacks to the east and north east of Kyiv,” the UK Defense Ministry said. “Both Chernihiv and Kyiv have been subjected to continued air and missile strikes despite Russian claims of reducing activity in these areas,” the ministry added.

Two Ukrainian military helicopters struck a fuel storage facility in the Russian city of Belgorod on Friday, regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said in a Telegram post. “There was a fire at the petrol depot because of an air strike carried out by two Ukrainian army helicopters, who entered Russian territory at a low altitude,” he said. Belgorod is located close to the Ukrainian border. The helicopters crossed the border at low altitude, Gladkov said, adding that the strike caused a blaze at the site injuring two workers and forcing authorities to evacuate some areas in the city. There have been no deaths resulting from the incident, the governor said. Ukraine has not claimed responsibility for the attack. The alleged strike comes just two days after the province was rocked by blasts at an arms depot. Gladkov said this week that the arms depot explosions were believed to be a result of another fire, although he said the regional authorities were awaiting confirmation from the Russian Defence Ministry.

    In the first three weeks, over two and a half million people were forced to flee for their lives, it is the most people mobilized in the shortest amount of time, ever !!
    One man, A personality, has through his demented lunacy, utterly shredded the lives of millions of people, effectively rendering their homeland a desolate and ruined wreck.
    The security, stability, future prosperity and very sanctity of life for an entire continent, has become subordinate to the interests of one man’s egomaniacal self-agrandising ambitions, one man with an insecurity complex and an over compensating politically sadistic, bigoted ideology, has taken it upon himself to decide the fate of one hundred and forty six million of his own countryman’s lives, a people who are incarcerated by censorship, deceit and distorted representations of facts, which every thinking person on the Planet can see for themselves to be self evident.

    Russia has room to cut gas supplies to Europe after establishing trade deals with India and China. More expensive suppliers or rationing has the potential to crash European economies affecting their ability to finance the Ukrainian side of the war. Nations collecting transit fees would be impacted some already have major economic problems.

    I lift up everyone’s prayers, wants and needs to You Jesus, please pour out blessings. May Your favor, grace and mercy be upon the world. In Jesus name come help us all. You know our needs and everything else about each of us. In Jesus name amen thank you Jesus praise God 🙏
    Help people to be rooted and grounded in Your love. That they are living in the truth being taught by Jesus. 🙏

    Jesus Christ is the son of God who died and rose three days later and loves all of you. He died for everyone and wants you with Him, to know Him and live for His glory. Come be saved eternally and spend time with Him to know Him. Be free, forgiven, healed, delivered, saved, baptized, whole and let Him show you how He is everything you need.🕊️
    Ask anything in His name 🙏 amen hallelujah praise God thank you Jesus 🙏

    Show God, live for His glory🕊️🔥💕🙏. We are to be an example of Jesus for the world to see Him and want to know Him and know Him more. 🕊️ 🙏
    2 chronicles 7 14 says if My people humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways I will hear them from heaven and heal their land. 🔥
    People need to turn from their wicked ways, Jesus paid for it. They need to repent, to be cleansed by His blood and live Holy because He’s Holy and righteous because He’s righteous. Our God said to stop sinning in many many scriptures and He paid for everyone to be cleansed of sin, to live how He said. He dwells in the temple (your body) and said not to defile the temple. He said to defile the temple is death. He’s always serious about everything He said to do. He’s just as serious about what He said not to do. We live in obedience to His law, every word if it! 💕
    Deuteronomy 28 there are blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. The whole chapter, and verse 46 is one example of generational curses. These go into the following generations, the 3 and 4th. Our children pay the price for our sin. Stop sinning you are sending consequences to your loved ones. By God’s law you are. If you don’t believe me ask Him, in Jesus name may you see and know the truth in it’s fullness. 🕊️🙏🔥💕
    He’s worthy of everything He said and paid for, so I implore you to do as God said. Jesus said If you love me you will obey me. Praise God thank you Jesus in Jesus name 💕 🕊️ 🙏🔥💕🙏🕊️🔥

    3:35 dumb comment. There is no way that the Russians are doing anything in hopes of garnering support with the West. The idea that they would cause intense human suffering and that that would convince us; is nothing short of ridiculous.
    This is generally a reliable news source, but keep the idiotic op-eds to the side please.

    Please Putin was misinformed please, at this time Putin wanted to know what he learned in the kgb, he is a true inept, not half a brute is a complete brute, he gets carried away by impulse. the Russian people have to remove him from power. As soon as possible if he is not going to lead the Russian people to ruin.

    QUESTION FOR ALL: what would you think if all Ukrainians fighting and the russian troops that don’t support Putin, went into the Kremlin and started doing the same thing?
    The fact Russian citizens aren’t removing their own Gov ticks me off. 53% support Putin. That is horrible. But I would love nothing more then ALL troops inside ukraine and russians opposing the war, to turn around and destroy putin and his goons at this point. Just being honest.
    Putin blew up one of his oil depots today. I know it’s him because he blamed ukraine. Yeah, like russia would just allow 2 Ukrainian helicopters to fly in their airspace. Yesterday he threatened everyone by cutting off his oil if they didn’t pay in rubles. Everyone said no. Today, he exploded an oil depot. Yeah. That’s legit
