As Diplomats Begin Talks, Rocket Strikes Kill Dozens In Kharkiv.

By Ebor Cletus Ralph Jr /Agency Reports.

As ceasefire talks between Russian and Ukrainian delegation commences, Russian rocket attacks killed dozens of people in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv with the Kremlin facing unprecedented international sanctions that have created “a new economic reality” for Russia.


Four days into the fighting and a slower Russian advance than many expected, the Ukrainian interior ministry adviser Anton Herashchenko said Kharkiv had been “massively fired on”, leaving “dozens of dead and hundreds of wounded”.


This news is coming hours after the Ukrainian presidency said it had begun negotiations with a Russian delegation on the border with Belarus, aimed at achieving “an immediate ceasefire and the withdrawal of Russian forces.


Amid continued fighting around several cities and the Russian rouble in free fall, the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, urged Russian troops to abandon their equipment and leave the battlefield to save their lives, claiming 4,500 were already dead.


Vladimir Putin, faced with a barrage of western reprisals, ordered his defence chiefs to put the country’s nuclear forces on high alert. On the score of this, Zelenskiy said he was sceptical about the talks’ prospects for success, but added: “Let them try.”


Pre-dawn blasts were again heard in the capital, Kyiv, in Kharkiv and in the port city of Mariupol on the Sea of Azov, officials said, but they added that the attempts of Russian ground forces to capture major urban centres were still being repelled. TrendyNews reliably gathered.
