Ukraine’s Defense Minister claims that two British citizens have been captured by invading Russian soldiers near Irpen and are being held hostage.
Humanitarian corridors near Mariupol have been shut down multiple times due to Russian violations of the cease fire, leading to civilian deaths in the city. Spravdi claims that a six year old girl in Mariupol perished of dehydration after a building collapsed around her, and her mother died shortly after. They state that the city is without, “water, electricity, heat and communications. All exits and entrances to the city were blocked. Now the city is trapped in a humanitarian catastrophe.”
Ukraine also claims that 13 of its female Air Force service members have been killed out of 7,000 women total in that division of their forces. Russia has yet to comment on the death of Major General Gerasimov.
