EU Chief Promises A Signal On Ukraine’s Bid Next Week
- Russia using more deadly weapons in war
- Ukraine pleads for more weapons, cholera spreads in Mariupol
- Ukraine in control of Sievierodonetsk plant sheltering hundreds
Ukraine-Russia Crisis: Ukrainian and British officials warned on June 11th that Russian forces are relying on weapons able to cause mass casualties as they try to make headway in capturing eastern Ukraine and fierce, prolonged fighting depletes resources on both sides.
Meanwhile, Ukraine pleaded to Western countries for faster deliveries of weapons as better-armed Russian forces pounded the east of the country, and for humanitarian support to combat growing outbreaks of deadly diseases.
During a visit to Kyiv by the European Union’s top official, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for a new round of “even stronger” EU sanctions against Russia. Mr. Zelensky called for them to target more Russian officials, including judges, and to hamper the activities of all Russian banks.”
