    Mutinous Russian soldiers were stripped, tied up and taken away in trucks under the orders of a feared Russian general who has been sent in to restore discipline in Ukraine, according to a recording released by Kyiv's intelligence services. Meanwhile, another audio clip was released in which a Russian soldier was overheard calling Vladimir Putin an 'old nutjob' and criticising his war in Ukraine. The intercepted audio recordings are the latest evidence that morale is deteriorating among Moscow's forces as its faltering invasion of Ukraine entered its 12th week. Both recordings were shared by Ukrainian Defence Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate on social media on Thursday, according to the Daily Beast. In the first intercepted phone call, a Russian soldier is heard telling a friend that the Kremlin has sent in a general, named only in the discussion as 'Muradov'.  While the general's full name is not revealed in the discussion, it is likely the soldier is referring to lieutenant general Rustam Muradov - the deputy commander of Russia's Southern Military District, known for overseeing brutal fighting in the Syrian civil war. 'Well, Muradov arrived...
    Russian President Vladimir Putin had plans to take all of Ukraine, according to abandoned Russian documents which Ukrainian authorities reportedly found in the Ukrainian town of Trostyanets in Sumy Oblast. The documents, which Ukrainian authorities said they found while investigating Trostyanets, a northeastern Ukrainian town Russian troops occupied for a month during the war, suggest that while Russia is currently focusing its attacks on the Donbas in eastern Ukraine, Putin’s ambitions lie far beyond the east. “Investigators… found important documents of soldiers of the Russian Federation's Armed Forces that give a clear understanding that Russia was preparing to seize all the territory of Ukraine,” Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigation Chief Oleksiy Sukhachev said in a statement. “All this information will be studied.” The Russian forces that occupied Trostyanets had set up a headquarters in the town’s train station, according to France 24. The Russian military was using Trostyanets as a passage route to make way for tanks to head towards the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, in an effort to seize the capital, The New York Times reported. But the Russian military...

    ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — A Croatian citizen who fought alongside Ukrainian troops in Mariupol has been detained by the Russian army, Croatian state media reported Saturday. Croatia’s Foreign Ministry also confirmed that it “has knowledge of a detained Croatian citizen,” and is working with the Ukrainian authorities to resolve the situation. It offered no further information due to “sensitivity of the situation.” The state HRT television reported that the Croatian man tried to flee Mariupol with other Ukrainian fighters but was caught by the Russians. No other details were immediately available. The N1 regional television said the arrest was first reported by Russian media. The strategic port of Mariupol has faced weeks of Russian bombardment. The attacks have intensified on embattled resisting troops in a steel factory in the city as Russian troops seek to fully conquer Mariupol in time for Russia’s Victory Day celebrations on Monday celebrating the 1945 defeat of Nazi Germany.

    Refugees from Mariupol were subjected to a humiliating interrogation by Russian troops before they were finally freed from the steelworks where they had been hiding for two months.  Exhausted survivors told the Daily Mail they were called ‘Ukrainian scum’, had their underwear checked and were forced to give their fingerprints at a Russian checkpoint before they were allowed to board Red Cross buses.  Dozens of refugees arriving at a UN aid centre in the southern city of Zaporizhzhia yesterday also gave horrifying accounts of their time cowering in bunkers at the Azovstal steelworks.  Tonight, there were fears for hundreds of civilians still trapped at the Soviet-era site as Russian bombs rained down in a relentless barrage.  Around 156 survivors were rescued in a mercy mission at the weekend after the Red Cross managed to secure a ceasefire.  A man welcomes Mariupol evacuees Anna Zaitseva and her son Svyatoslav, aged six months, at a processing area in Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine But it emerged that part of the deal with the Kremlin meant the evacuees had to be ‘screened’ by brutish Russian soldiers...
    Ukraine's top military spy has suggested the only way Russia will stop its brutal invasion is if Vladimir Putin dies. Kyrylo Budanov said it is 'unrealistic' to expect the Kremlin to completely withdraw its forces from Ukraine. When asked if Putin could end the war alive, he told The New Voice of Ukraine: 'Leaving him a way to retreat is one of the strategies, but it is almost unrealistic.  Kyrylo Budanov (pictured) has suggested the only way Russia will stop its brutal invasion is if Vladimir Putin dies Budanov said it is 'unrealistic' to expect the Kremlin to completely withdraw its forces from Ukraine 'He is a war criminal for the whole world. This is his end, he drove himself into a dead end.' The spy chief did not propose any suggestions for how Putin might die. But he said he believes it could spark a political crisis in Russia, which could see the country divided up.

    Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment a pair of Russian tanks suffered a direct hit from bombs stealthily dropped from a Ukrainian drone. Expertly flown by an operator believed to be from Ukraine's 503rd Naval Infantry Battalion, the drone swooped above two Russian infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) at an estimated height of around 400ft, before letting loose its payload. Five seconds later, the anti-armour grenades detonated and engulfed the IFVs in a pair of huge fireballs. Ukraine's armed forces have used drones to great effect amid the Russian invasion, expertly conducting small-scale airstrikes and using drone-mounted cameras to analyse Russian troop movements to prepare ambushes. It is unclear where the drone strike took place, though Radio Liberty reported in February that the 503rd Naval Infantry Battalion was deployed in the Donbas region of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, where fighting has intensified amid a major Russian offensive. It comes as the Land Forces of Ukraine today reported an estimated 23,000 Russian soldiers have been killed thus far in just nine weeks of war. A Russian armoured vehicle is seen centre seconds...

    A former U.S. Marine was killed while fighting alongside Ukrainian forces after the private security firm he worked for sent him to war.  The family of Willy Joseph Cancel, 22, of Orange County New York, confirmed that the husband and father of a seven-month-old son had died in the Ukraine fighting Russian forces on Monday, CNN reported.  Cancel's mother, Rebecca Cabrera, said her son was working for a private military contracting company when he agreed to take up a job to fight in the Ukraine following Russia's invasion in February.  'He wanted to go over because he believed in what Ukraine was fighting for, and he wanted to be a part of it to contain it there so it didn't come here, and that maybe our American soldiers wouldn't have to be involved in it,' Cabrera told CNN.  She added that those fighting alongside Cancel were not able to retrieve his body during the conflict that killed him.  'They haven't found his body,' she said. 'They are trying, the men that were with him, but it was either grab his...
    The International Atomic Energy Agency has raised the alarm over safety fears at Europe's largest nuclear power plant in Ukraine, currently under Russian occupation. Rafael Grossi, the director of the UN agency, said the level of safety at the Zaporizhzhia plant in southern Ukraine is like a 'red light blinking' as his organization tries in vain to persuade Moscow to give it access for work, including repairs. He said the IAEA must be allowed to, among other things, re-establish the plant's connections with the Vienna-based headquarters of the U.N. agency.  And for that, he warned, both Russia and Ukraine need to help. The plant requires repairs, 'and all of this is not happening. So the situation as I have described it, and I would repeat it today, is not sustainable as it is,' Grossi said. 'So this is a pending issue. This is a red light blinking.' He spoke in an interview Wednesday, a day after meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky about the issue and after visiting Chernobyl. The International Atomic Energy Agency has raised the alarm over safety levels at Europe's...
    Russian regions close to Ukraine were hit by a new wave of blasts early today as Ukraine continued to fight back against Vladimir Putin's invasion.  An ammunition depot in Belgorod region was reportedly ablaze. Suspected attacks from a more assertive Ukraine were also seen in Voronezh and Kursk regions. In Kursk, there were unconfirmed reports that Russian air defenses had downed Ukrainian military drones.  Belgorod is a region of around 1.5 million people, just north of Ukraine's second city, Kharkiv.  Explosions were heard in the cities of Kursk and Oboyan. Locals heard the military planes flying over Oboyan. On the same morning as the Belgorod incident, the Russian news agency TASS reported on 'two loud bangs' in the city of Voronezh.' The agency reported that the Russian military air defenses were scrambled in the area in order to defend the Baltimor military airfield.  The neighborhood where the bangs were heard, Shilovo, is located close to the Baltimor base.  The base is over 180 miles from the Ukrainian border. On Monday, two Russian fuel depots in the city of Bryansk were...

     A Ukrainian man has been tracking the redeployment of Vladimir Putin’s forces via a pair of wireless earphones stolen from him by invading troops. Vitaliy Semenets’s Apple AirPods were looted from his home in Hostomel, near Kyiv, soon after the war began as Russia tried to take the Ukrainian capital. He has since been using Find My – a location-tracking feature available on all Apple products – to follow the troops on their 550-mile retreat across the country. As Russian soldiers pulled back from Kyiv this month, Mr Semenets followed his earphones on online maps as they were taken across the border into Belarus, ending up near the city of Gomel. Last week the AirPods – which cost as much as £200 – had reached Belgorod, a city in Russia Last week the AirPods – which cost as much as £200 – had reached Belgorod, a city in Russia where Putin is assembling troops for an assault on the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine.

    By The Associated Press A senior U.S. defense official says the U.S. believes the Russian guided-missile cruiser that sank Thursday in the northern Black Sea had been struck by at least one Ukrainian anti-ship missile, as claimed by the Kyiv government. Pentagon officials had previously said they could not confirm the Ukrainian claim, but they also did not refute it. The senior U.S. defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an intelligence assessment, said the Moskva was hit by at least one, and probably two, Neptune missiles on Wednesday, creating the large fire aboard. The official offered no further details beyond saying the U.S. believes the Russians suffered some number of casualties aboard the ship. — reported by Associated Press writer Robert Burns ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Police: More than 900 civilian bodies found in Kyiv region — ‘We pray for you’: Ukrainian Jews mark Passover, if they can — Ukraine’s port of Mariupol holds out against all odds — War Crimes Watch: The woman who would make Putin pay — Ukrainian mom’s...
