War in Ukraine Updates: “repression”. “Russian President Vladimir Putin has decided to conduct a special military operation to demilitarize and nazify Ukraine, so that, freed from oppression, Ukrainians can independently determine their future,” Lavrov told a news conference in Moscow. “

According to a report by BNO News, the Kiev Bridge has been blown up to block the entry of Russian forces into the capital. CNN and the Guardian have reported citing US officials. That the Russian army is now just kilometers (about 20 miles) from Kiev. While several attacks have targeted civilian objects in the capital. President Zelensky has called it an attempt to pressure the citizens of Ukraine as well as the authorities.

Ukraine’s president said Friday that his country was left to fight Russia after 130 Ukrainians were killed earlier in the day after the Kremlin launched a massive offensive. “We have been left alone to defend our state,” said Volodymyr Zelensky in a video address to the nation after midnight. “Who is ready to fight with us? I don’t see anyone. Who is ready to guarantee Ukraine NATO membership? Everyone is scared,” he said.

Zelensky said 137 Ukrainians, both military personnel and civilians, had been killed since the start of the attack early Thursday. Another 316 were injured, he said.

Zelensky also said Russian “sabotage groups” had entered the capital Kiev, and urged the city’s citizens to remain vigilant and follow the curfew. The president said he and his family remained in Ukraine while Russia identified him as “target number one”. “They want to destroy Ukraine politically by removing the head of state,” Zelensky said.

US President Joe Biden on Thursday said Washington is still in unresolved “consultations” with India. Asked whether Washington and Delhi are fully coordinating their response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine ahead of the UN Security Council vote.

Biden did not elaborate, but his brief response to a question at a briefing in which he announced tough new sanctions on Ukraine over Russia drew attention to a strange divide between his administration and India.

India has developed close ties with Washington in recent years, but has long had close ties with Moscow, which remains a major supplier of its defense equipment.

The 15-member UN Security Council, of which India is a member, is likely to vote on a draft resolution on Friday. That would condemn Russia for attacking Ukraine and require Moscow to withdraw immediately and unconditionally, a senior US administration official said.

Russia is expected to veto the move, but Washington sees the vote as an attempt to isolate Moscow. At least 13 votes in favor and calls for a boycott by Russia’s ally – China.

Biden said Putin would be crippled on the international stage as a result of his attack on Ukraine and that “any country that faces Russia’s naked aggression against Ukraine will be tainted by the union.”

Asked whether India is fully in sync with the United States, he said: “We are consulting with India today. We haven’t fully resolved it.”

In a statement, the US State Department said US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Indian Secretary of State Subrahmanyam Jaishankar on Thursday and “condemned Russia’s aggression and called for an immediate withdrawal and ceasefire as a strong collective response”. stressed the importance.”

Jaishankar said in a tweet that he discussed the implications of developments in Ukraine with Blinken, without disclosing further details about the call.
