War in Ukraine: Kyiv's mayor warns the death toll in the city could be in the thousands
Kyiv's mayor tells NPR the number of dead in Ukraine's capital could be in the hundreds, if not thousands, after weeks of attacks from Russian forces.
And in the latest nightly address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on Russians to resist the draft — saying conscripts will most certainly face the risk of death — and asked people in occupied regions to sabotage Russia's military.
Here's more context to understand Ukraine and the impact of the invasion:
- The Ukrainian mayor who was kidnapped says the Russian soldiers who snatched him knew nothing about his country.
- Russia threatened to fine Wikipedia if it doesn't remove some details about the war.
- On Friday, Russian officials said that Ukrainian helicopters struck an oil depot in the Russian city of Belgorod.
