Frontline report: Ukrainian counterattack drives back Russians in north – BBC News

Published

on



Ukrainian forces have successfully counterattacked against Russian troops, north of the country’s second largest city, Kharkiv.

They’ve retaken towns and villages, pushing Russian infantry and artillery back towards the border.

The fighting has been slow and costly but Ukrainian forces say they have gained the upper hand.

Kharkiv is just 35 miles from the Russian border. The Ukrainian military success could threaten the Russian aim of capturing large areas of territory in the east of the country.

Clive Myrie in Kyiv presents a BBC News at Ten special report from Quentin Sommerville and Darren Conway on the frontline north of Kharkiv.

Ukraine rejects Russian demand to surrender Mariupol – BBC News

Published

on



Ukraine has refused to surrender Mariupol, rejecting a demand from Russia to give up the city by the deadline of 05:00 Moscow time (02:00 GMT).

Russia had offered to set up humanitarian corridors so residents could leave in exchange for the city.

About 300,000 people remain trapped with little if any food, water and power in the city which has been incessantly bombed for the past two weeks.

Russia has struck several civilian shelters, schools, a hospital and a theatre.

Ukraine has said the Mariupol attacks are war crimes that will go down in history.
