The most important advances in the war are still linked to the city of Mariupol – as many expect – to intensify Russia’s military operations in eastern Ukraine. Before the Russian invasion it had a population of 400,000, today it is largely destroyed, with only a few tens of thousands remaining, which was almost completely captured by the Russian army. There are still a few Ukrainian soldiers in the harbor area of ​​the Azovstal steel plant: it is not known exactly how many there are, they have been fighting for days with little food and ammunition, many of them wounded. Russia is expected to take full control of the city, which will be the largest city captured since the start of the war.

Meanwhile, after several days of calm in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, Russia on Friday began attacking targets. On Friday, Russia claimed to have attacked one of the factories used to manufacture “Neptune” missiles (Ukraine allegedly used it to sink “Moscow”); On Saturday, Russia said it had attacked a military auto factory, and on Sunday it said it had destroyed an ammunition factory in Proveri, a suburb of Kiev. At least one person was killed and several others were injured in what became known as Saturday’s attack.
