Oorlogssituatie Oekraïne – dag 74

By Jordi Bou

May 8, 2022 - Dozens of people are feared dead in the eastern Ukrainian village of Bilohorivka after a bomb hit a school where about 90 people were sheltering.

Ukraine and the West have accused Russian forces of targeting civilians and war crimes, charges Moscow rejects.

In the besieged port city of Mariupol, the last 300 civilians trapped in the bombed-out Azovstal steelworks were evacuated on Saturday.

Ukrainian fighters in the plant have vowed not to surrender and Russian forces are seeking to declare a victory in the prolonged battle for the vast plant in time for Monday’s Victory Day celebrations in Moscow, which commemorate the Soviet Union's triumph over Nazi Germany in World War Two.
