The Russo-Ukraine war: Latest Updates

Must Read

The Russian Invasion of Ukraine may not have panned out as wanted by the Russians. Russia is engaging in battles in Donbas, Sievierodoentsk, Kharkiv and Luhansk regions which are being fiercely defended by Ukrainian troops. Yet Ukraine is on the backfoot as it is running out of Soviet era ammunition and does not have enough anti-missile systems to counter Russian projectiles aimed at its cities.

Here are the latest updates:

  1. US officials say new military aid for Ukraine might come as early as this week
