I received very disturbing sick video images of mass slaughter by a Polish friend. It showed massacred Ukrainian soldiers, large columns of destroyed trucks, armoured vehicles and cars and vans. Russian solieders throwing the corpses of killed Ukrainian soldiers on the ground, some badly mutitated. It is a brutal war. A large Russian force is moving to Kyiv. I also saw a Russian missile hitting a civilian apartment building in Kiyv.
The Dutch NOS broadcast corporation reported that that the British Ministry of Defense says the main force of Russian troops heading for Kiev has 30 kilometers to go before it reaches the center. That is where President Zelensky and his staff are known to be. The Ukrainian troops are offering strong resistance, according to British intelligence.
According to the British, the Russians still have no control over Ukrainian airspace. That would seriously reduce the effectiveness of the Russian air force.
Also, according to the ministry, the number of Russian victims is probably high and greater than the Kremlin had expected and admits.
Chechen fighters will go to Ukraine to fight for Russia
The leader of Russia's Chechnya region says he has deployed his fighters to Ukraine to join battle with Russian troops.
In a video posted online, Ramzan Kadyrov said Chechen forces had so far successfully captured a Ukrainian military facility without suffering any casualties.
The leader of the southern Russian republic is a key ally of the Russian president.
Justifying the invasion, he says Putin's decision to attack Ukraine will prevent Moscow's enemies from using the country to launch an attack on Russia.
Chechen fighters loyal to Kadyrov have a notorious reputation and stand accused of human rights abuses.
