The Heat

The United Nations says there have been at least 4400 civilian deaths and 5500 injuries in Ukraine since the conflict with Russia began on February 24th.

Nearly four months later, after initially fending off Russia in the West, Ukraine is reportedly running low on ammunition, while struggling to repel Russian forces trying to capture the wider Donbas region, including Luhansk and the embattled city of Severodonetsk. CGTN’s Michael Voss filed a report from Kyiv.
