Latest News in Russia-Ukraine War

From the Wall Street Journal:

Ukraine: Russian forces advanced into the center of Severodonetsk, one of the last Ukrainian strongholds in the eastern Donbas region, where Moscow is now concentrating its offensive.

The battle for Severodonetsk has in many ways resembled the fight for Mariupol, where Russian-backed forces worked to encircle the city while constant shelling reduced most buildings to rubble.

A French journalist was killed while reporting on evacuation efforts in Luhansk, the province’s governor said.

Strains to infrastructure will impair Ukraine’s ability to export its coming grain harvest, as the country tries to work around Russia’s Black Sea blockade, likely depriving the world of more than 8% of all cereal exports.
