According to a Ukrainian officer inside the besieged Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol, all civilians who were sheltering there are likely out.

In March, two unarmed civilians were shot by Russian soldiers as they walked away from an encounter on the outskirts of Kyiv. CNN obtained surveillance video of a war crime that is currently being investigated.

According to Russian authorities, a civilian has died in Russia as a result of cross-border shelling from Ukraine for the first time.

12. Russia is the “most direct threat” to world order, says European Commission president.

Russia “is today the most direct threat to the world order with a barbaric war against Ukraine and its worrying pact with China and their call for new, and very much arbitrary, international relations,” von der Leyen told reporters after talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and European Council President Charles Michel in Tokyo.

Michel and von der Leyen are in Tokyo for the 28th EU-Japan summit, during which their support for Ukraine was high on the agenda.

“Our cooperation in Ukraine is critical in Europe, but it’s also important in the Pacific and we also want to deepen our consultation on a more assertive China,” Michel told reporters. “We believe that China must stand up to defend the multilateral system that it has benefited from in developing its country.”
Michel also said “those responsible for war crimes must be and will be brought to justice.”
