Dozens feared dead under rubble after Russian bomb attack on Ukrainian school

After a Russian bomb exploded at a school in eastern Ukraine, sixty people are believed to have been killed.

The bombing destroyed the building, killing approximately 90 people who were hiding in it, according to the governor of Luhansk.

Serhiy Gadai, a Telegram messenger user, wrote that two people were confirmed dead and that 60 more are “likely” to have perished under the rubble.

He said that thirty-seven people were rescued and seven others were injured.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss reacted to the attack by saying that she was “horrified” at the incident that resulted in the deaths of innocent civilians sheltering from Russian bombardment.

“Deliberate targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure amounts war crimes.” She said that we will hold Putin’s government accountable.

As Russian forces continued their bombardment of the southern Ukraine and hit the main Black Sea port Odesa with cruise missiles, the attack on the village of Bilohorivka was a result.

They also attacked the steelworks in Mariupol, where Ukrainian fighters were still trapped underground.

Vladimir Putin aims to conquest Mariupol by Monday’s Victory Day celebrations. However, his forces still face a determined resistance from the underground bunkers.

Russia‘s Victory Day, 9 May, is one of the most significant national events in the country. It marks a remembrance for the sacrifices made by Soviet Union to defeat Nazi Germany.

“Evil has returned”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zilenskyy declared, in an emotional speech on Sunday to mark Victory Day: “The evil is back.” Again.

“In a different format, under different slogans but with the same purpose.”

On Sunday, Mr Zelenskyy will meet with Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and other leaders from the G7 countries to discuss additional support.

After the UK stated that it would provide additional PS1.3bn in military assistance to Ukrainian forces, this is now.

As a sign that Ukraine is defending itself well in the 11th week, its military destroyed Russian positions on a Black Sea Island, which was captured in the early stages of the conflict. This island has since become a symbol for resistance.

Snake Island is located about 20 miles from the coast. It was the scene of a remarkable incident in wartime when Ukrainian border guards stationed there refused to surrender to Russian orders. They purportedly used colourful language and defied Russian orders.

Western military analysts said that a counteroffensive by Ukraine was moving around Kharkiv, the country’s second largest city.

The Ukrainian military claimed that three bridges were destroyed by Russian forces on a road northeastern of Kiev to stop the Ukrainian advance.

Russian troops in ‘full combat ready’ in Moldova

The Ukrainian military warned that Russian and separatist troops in neighboring Moldova are “full alert”.

This region has become an increasingly important focus of worries about the possibility that conflict could extend beyond Ukraine’s borders.

Pro-Russian forces disintegrated the Transnistria Section of Moldova in 1992. Since then, Russian troops have been stationed there, ostensibly to serve as peacekeepers.

Ukraine stated that these forces are “full combat ready”, but did not provide details about how they came to be there.

Moscow attempted to sweep through southern Ukraine in an attempt to isolate the country from the sea, and to create a corridor to Transnistria. However, it has not been able to accomplish these objectives.
