TheVoiceOfJoyce The Russians took heavy losses in Soledar and may have captured that city. Their propaganda to their own people, denies they shell apartment buildings and kill civilians, they do and unfortunately there is proof. In Dnipro, at least 37 were killed. I mentioned 100’s, that was a total with the injured. What do the Russian people think? Putin invaded a civilized country, Russian troops outnumber the Ukrainian military, most targets are civilians and many have been brutally murdered. Now it’s assumed that Belarus and Russia will combine to attack Kyiv. No one is going to shell Belarus, Ukrainians are protecting their homeland. Don’t wait for spring, Ukraine needs tanks and long range missiles now. Their counteroffensive must be successful now.

Soon the IAEA will be permanently present at all of Ukraine’s nuclear power facilities, including Chornobyl. This is an important step in our work to help Ukraine during these immensely difficult and challenging times. Our nuclear safety and security experts will monitor the situation at the plants, assess their equipment and other needs, provide technical support and advice, and report their findings to IAEA headquarters.

The Kremlin has denied that Russian missile strikes hit residential buildings in Ukraine, after local officials in Dnipro said at least 40 people were killed in Saturday’s attack on a residential block in the Ukrainian south-central city.

During a call with reporters, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said:

The Russian armed forces do not strike residential buildings or social infrastructure facilities. Attacks are made on military targets, either obvious or disguised.

Ukraine’s air force has said the residential block was struck by a Russian Kh-22 missile, which is known to be inaccurate and that Kyiv says it has no way of shooting down.
