Russian forces fired cruise missiles at the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa on Saturday and bombarded a besieged steel mill in Mariupol, hoping to complete their conquest of the port in time for Victory Day celebrations. Ukraine announced that all women, children and older adults had been evacuated from the mill, a key Russian war objective.

Russian forces fired cruise missiles at the southern Ukrainian city of Odesa on Saturday and bombarded a besieged steel mill in Mariupol, hoping to complete their conquest of the port in time for Victory Day celebrations. Ukraine announced that all women, children and older adults had been evacuated from the mill, a key Russian war objective.

The most intense fighting in recent days has been in eastern Ukraine, where the two sides are entrenched in a fierce battle to capture or reclaim territory. Moscow's offensive there has focused on the industrial Donbas region, where Russia-backed separatists have been fighting since 2014 and occupy some areas.

The image corresponds with a Ukrainian military video showing a drone striking the Russian vessel, engulfing it in flames. Snake Island, located some 35 kilometers off the coast, figured in a memorable incident early in the war when Ukrainian border guards stationed there defied Russian orders to surrender, purportedly using colorful language.

"The president's order has been carried out: All women, children and the elderly have been evacuated from Azovstal," Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said, without elaborating. "This part of the Mariupol humanitarian operation has been completed."The Russian news agency Tass had reported that 50 civilians were evacuated Saturday, a day after a similar number left.

Three Ukrainian fighters were killed and six more were wounded during Friday's evacuation attempt. Capt. Sviatoslav Palamar, the deputy commander of the Azov Regiment, said his troops had waved white flags and accused Russian forces of firing an anti-tank weapon at a vehicle.

They were being used as human shields. All efforts were made to let them leave. 6.5 billion ppl from outside the G7 fake news reach. Hear the truth of events taking place

The US's is very gy same as Khalistan and that's why they aren't attacked!

Troubles me because Putin has killed a lot of innocent souls and has a lot of making up to do because of it. Khalistan?

If I was Vladimir would've caused a buncha disarray! Would've attacked Ukraine from the West and also Germany and Poland! Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania as well!

Vlad went wrong should've been attacking Lviv and Kyiv! Attacking normal ppl is something he should've grown out of by now! Made a lot of mistakes!
