Ukraine War 60 People Killed After Bomb Hits School, Zelensky Says

Ukraine War Updates: According to President Volodymyr Zelensky, some 60 people were murdered when a bomb exploded at a school in eastern Ukraine. Serhiy Haidai, the governor of the Luhansk area, previously stated that 90 people were sheltering in the building in Bilohorivka, with 30 being rescued.

Mr. Haidai claimed the bomb was dropped by a Russian plane on Saturday; Russia has not responded. As Russian troops and rebel fighters attempt to surround government forces in Luhansk, violent fighting has erupted.

For the past eight years, Russia-backed rebels have controlled much of the territory. Bilohorivka lies near Severo Donetsk, a government-controlled city where severe combat was reported in the outskirts on Saturday. According to Ukrayinska Pravda, a Ukrainian publication, the settlement became a “hot point” during violence last week.

According to the governor, who wrote on Telegram, the bomb pulled down the building, which caught fire, and it took firefighters three hours to put out the fire. He claimed that practically the entire community had taken refuge in the school’s basement.

The governor stated that the ultimate death toll would not be known until the rubble was cleared. The strike was “appalled” by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who added that “civilians must always be spared in times of war.

“Ukrainian rebels at a steelworks in Mariupol’s port have informed the world they will not surrender to Russian forces and have requested assistance in evacuating their injured. For weeks, Russia has besieged the area, urging the Azov battalion’s defenders to lay down their arms.

Members of the battalion, though, declared they would not give in during a live press conference from the largely wrecked factory.” Surrender is unacceptable for us because we cannot give such a large gift to the enemy,” stated one of them, Lt Illia Samoilenko.

He said, ” “We’re basically zombies. Most of us are aware of this. That is why we fight so bravely.”The fighters also lambasted the Ukrainian government, claiming that it had failed to defend Mariupol. President Volodymyr Zelensky, on the other hand, retorted that Ukraine lacked the heavy artillery required to clear the city and that it was his diplomatic efforts that secured the evacuation of all residents trapped inside the steelworks.

On Sunday, 170 civilians arrived in the comparatively safe city of Zaporizhzhia from Mariupol, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which is coordinating evacuations with the UN. The Red Cross said in a statement that the four-day operation, which began on May 5, “included the evacuation of 51 civilians from Azovstal.”

Around 500 people were evacuated from Azovstal and the Mariupol area to Zaporizhzhia in May, according to the ICRC. In a speech commemorating World War II on Sunday, President Zelensky accused Russia of carrying out “a brutal rebuilding of Nazism” and accused the Russian army of repeating historical “atrocities.”

The video message of Ukraine’s president featured him against a backdrop of demolished residential buildings. Western nations, on the other hand, have continued to express their support for Ukraine’s battle.

Later on Sunday, Ukraine’s president held video conference conversations with G7 leaders, including US Vice President Joe Biden and UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. The leaders pledged their continued support for Ukraine War and their commitment to wean themselves off Russian oil supplies following the conference.

Payments for Russian energy are in the millions of dollars each day, and they help Russia support its military effort. Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, saw Mr. Zelensky in person following an unannounced visit to Irpin, near Kyiv, which was decimated by Russian soldiers early in the invasion.

Following that, Mr. Trudeau pledged more military assistance for Ukraine at a press conference. On Sunday, the speaker of the German Bundestag met with Mr. Zelensky in Kyiv, while US First Lady Jill Biden traveled from Slovakia to see Mr. Zelensky’s wife, Olena Zelenska.

According to the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, at least 2,345 civilians have died and 2,919 have been injured in Ukraine since Russia’s incursion began on February 24.

On both sides, thousands of combatants are thought to have been killed or injured. Since the crisis began, more than 12 million people are believed to have fled their homes, with 5.7 million fleeing to neighboring countries and another 6.5 million displaced within the war-torn country.
