Marine commander Oleksandr is fighting on the frontline in the Donbas region of Ukraine. He says 80% of his unit have now been killed or wounded - but that the Russians have also suffered losses. Full story from Sky's @sparkomat :
Zelensky: The fight in the Donbas “will surely go down in military history as one of the most brutal battles in Europe and for Europe.” He said about Russian forces: “We are dealing with absolute evil.” The Ukrainian president also repeated pleas for Western military assistance.
Warning: graphic. Horrific images & reports from Kramatorsk train station where state railway company board chairman Oleksandr Kamyshin says more than 30 people killed, 100+ others injured in a Russian rocket attack. 1000s of civilians fleeing the Donbas were there. 🎥: Kamyshin
@PentagonPresSec Zelensky speaks to the nation. The gravity of the situation looks to have really gotten to him. "Today I initiated a phone conversation with the president of the Russian Federation. The result was silence. Although it's the Donbas where there should be silence. "
