Ukrainian medics could do nothing to help him by that stage. Outraged Ukrainian police officer: ‘Tell America, tell the world, what they did to a journalist.’”

“Irpen, and its surrounding villages, are seeing an absolute humanitarian disaster. Russian soldiers occupied Vorzel, Hostomel, Zabucha and the Mylhailivka-Rubezhivka and won’t let residents leave their own homes,” the city’s former mayor said, according to a group of Ukrainian journalists. The former mayor described Russian forces shooting at homes and shelling hospitals.
