Russia-Ukraine conflict: Ukraine claims 137 people and troops have been killed; president says he has been "left alone" to battle Moscow.

In a statement, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said 137 civilians, including 10 military men, were killed and 316 injured in the Russian invasion. Among the dead were all the border guards on the island of Serpent in the Odessa region, which was captured by the Russians. Zelenskyy said Kyiv state, which is the capital of Ukraine, was "left alone" to fight against Moscow.

Ukraine said it lost control of the Chernobyl nuclear site, which caused the 1986 disaster. A senior official said staff at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant had been "taken hostage" when Russian troops occupied the facility, a move the United States called "unbelievable." A senior United States defence official said Russia may be intent on capturing Kyiv, the capital, and other key cities and eventually installing a more friendly government.


World leaders have blamed the aggression. The United States and its allies have said they will block the assets of four major Russian banks and impose export controls and sanctions. Countries on NATO's eastern flank, especially the Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, received the first shipments of US troops and equipment. Meanwhile, China hopes to provide customs help to the Kremlin by allowing wheat imports from all areas of Russia.
