    Vladimir Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine took several more hits Wednesday as new data showed Russians’ trust in TV news plunging over the course of the war, troops in Donetsk were caught shit-talking their Russian commanders, and a pro-Kremlin youth group linked to Putin himself disavowed his “catastrophe.” “The fact that my country is involved in a military conflict makes me very sad. But even more upsetting is that there are many examples of an enthusiastic position [on the war],” St. Petersburg activist Rinat Yevstigneyev—who took part in Putin’s 2018 election campaign for the youth group “Generation Z”—told Rotonda Media on Wednesday. “I honestly don’t know what there is to be happy about. Because people are dying [in Ukraine]? It’s mourning, not celebration. And everyone should do their best to save the lives of people on both sides in order to end this catastrophe as soon as possible,” he said. The group, which has been linked to the Putin administration, has now changed its name to “Generation Global” to avoid any association with Putin’s war, during which the “Z”...
    Russian authorities in Ukraine’s occupied city of Donetsk are tossing the bodies of their dead soldiers in a secret dump “by the thousands” and charging their loved ones money to find them. That’s according to a new audio recording released by Ukraine’s Security Service on Tuesday, which is purportedly an intercepted telephone conversation between two Russians discussing how one of their missing friends was finally found. In the two-and-a-half minute recording, an unidentified man tells his female relative that the fate of “Inna’s brother” is finally known after he went missing a month ago. “It’s better that you don’t hear this,” the man says at first, reluctant to spill all the grim details. After more urging, he finally explains that the unidentified dead man’s “sister went to Donetsk, and there, basically, roughly speaking, is a dump.” “They just toss them there. And then later it’s easier to make as if they disappeared without a trace. It’s easier for them to pretend they are just missing, and that’s it,” he said, noting that “there are thousands.” “There’s nowhere left to...
    Russia has lost its first female soldier during the war in Ukraine after a frontline medic was killed by mortar fire in the battle for Mariupol.  Valentina Galatova, 27 and a mother-of-one, died fighting in the Black Sea port city last month though her death was only confirmed by Russian media on Wednesday. Galatova was born in Siberia but moved to Voronezh, around 170 miles north-west of the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, when she was young.   After Russia's last invasion of Ukraine in 2014, she moved to an area of Donetsk province occupied by pro-Moscow separatists with her husband where she gave birth to their only child - a son, now aged eight.  Valentina Galatova, 27 (left and right), has become the first female Russian soldier confirmed to have died fighting in Ukraine after her funeral took place this week Galatova studied psychology in Donetsk and graduated in January this year.  Her husband, who was serving in the armed forces of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic, died in cross-border fighting with Ukrainian forces last year. After Putin attacked Ukraine for...
    Eight civilians were killed in Russian shelling in eastern Ukraine on Sunday as Moscow's forces push deeper into the eastern Donetsk region, the regional governor said. Russia's military leaders are pouring troops and equipment into the east of Ukraine in an attempt to force a bloody victory there after they abandoned plans to blitz through Ukraine's north and seize Kyiv earlier in the war. The town of Lyman, located a mere 15 miles from the Donetsk region's northernmost city of Slovyansk and 30 miles from the city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region, was the site of five of the civilian deaths. 'On May 1, four civilians were killed in Russian shelling in the Donetsk region, all in Lyman. Eleven other people were injured,' governor Pavlo Kyrylenko said on Telegram, later adding another person died of his injuries. Ukrainian media organisation Ukraine Now reported the attacks came as part of a consolidated Russian shelling offensive targeting Ukrainian military positions along the eastern front in Lyman, Severodonetsk, Slovyansk, Popasna and Kurakhiv over the weekend. Another three people were killed in shelling on...
    KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s General Staff says Russia is increasing the pace of its offensive in the east of the country, the goal of which is to take full control of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions and have a land corridor to Crimea. The Russian forces “are exerting intense fire” in almost all directions, the General Staff said in their Thursday morning update, with the “greatest activity observed in Slobozhanske and Donetsk directions.” Strikes on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, continue, the update said, and more forces have been moved to the city of Izyum. In the Donetsk direction, the Russian troops are focusing on encircling the Ukrainian forces. Over the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian forces have repelled six attacks in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, the General Staff said. ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — European leaders blast cutoff of Russian gas as ‘blackmail’ — Key players urge accountability for atrocities in Ukraine — A chilling Russian cyber aim in Ukraine: Digital dossiers — Russia releases US Marine vet in surprise prisoner exchange Follow all...
    (CNN)When Russia began its invasion of Ukraine on the morning of February 24, Darijo Srna was awoken at 6 a.m. by the sound of air raid sirens.It was a noise the former international football star says immediately transported his "head and body" back to his native Croatia, where he lived as an eight-year-old when war broke out in what was then Yugoslavia.So when his football club Shakhtar Donetsk was forced to leave Kyiv, the city that had been one of the team's many temporary bases since 2014, at the start of Russia's invasion, it was unfortunately a scenario Srna was all too familiar with.The former Croatian international is just 39 years old, but he has already experienced three wars in his life; first in Croatia in the early 1990s, then in 2014 in Ukraine's Donbas region -- Shakhtar's real home -- and now across much of the rest of the country."It was not a nice memory," Srna, who is Shakhtar Donetsk's director of football, says of his childhood. "When I started to forget about that a little bit and enjoy...
    (CNN)For 12-year-old Dmytro Keda, after the worst few weeks imaginable, Thursday evening was a dream come true. Keda, who fled his hometown of Mariupol in Ukraine after spending three weeks holed up as Russian forces bombarded the city, came on as a last-minute substitute in Shakhtar Donetsk's charity friendly match against Poland's Lechia Gdańsk. And in a touching scene, Keda -- having exchanged a few passes with his Shakhtar teammates after coming on -- was put through on goal, slotting home before being mobbed in celebration by players from both teams. Keda was lifted aloft in celebration, with his goal marking the difference in a 3-2 victory for the Ukrainian side.

    SHAKHTAR DONETSK returned to action for the first time since Russia's unjust invasion with a friendly 1-0 loss to Olympiacos on Saturday in a game which was put together only 42 hours earlier.

    (CNN)Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been far costlier and less successful than most analysts expected over its first six weeks -- and experts now believe that Moscow is changing its military approach.President Vladimir Putin's revised war strategy will now focus on trying to take control of the Donbas and other regions in eastern Ukraine with a target date of early May, according to several US officials familiar with the latest US intelligence assessments.That makes the city of Sloviansk, more than 300 miles east of the capital Kyiv, a potentially crucial battleground in the coming weeks."Efforts by Russian forces advancing from Izyum to capture Slovyansk will likely prove to be the next pivotal battle of the war in Ukraine," the Washington DC-based think tank Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said in its Monday update on the conflict in Ukraine. Its report uses alternative transliterations of Ukrainian place names.ISW expects Russian troops to begin offensive operations towards the city from nearby Izium in the coming days, a forecast that matches warnings on the ground.Read More"They go south to Kamyanka because...
    A Ukrainian monastery sheltering 1,000 people was struck by Russian missiles and a train heading to pick up evacuees was damaged by bomb debris last night as more than 2.6 million people have fled the country.  Families, including 200 children, sheltering in the Svyatogorsk Lavra, an Orthodox Christian monastery in the Donetsk region, were left terrified after it was damaged by a missile last night.  The monastery says the bomb exploded 50 metres from a bridge at the entrance to the site, injuring a number of people. Meanwhile, a conductor on a train heading to pick up refugees in the city of Lyman, also in the Donetsk region, was killed by bomb debris last night.  Pavlo Kyrylenko, Governor of Donetsk Oblast, denounced the incidents as 'hellish crimes' and vowed to punish those responsible. It comes as the UN confirms nearly 2.7 million people have left Ukraine as refugees, with the vast majority heading west into EU countries, and it is expected this number could rise to more than 4 million in the coming weeks.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned against the formation of a 'pseudo-republic' in the south of his country on Sunday. Zelensky said Russians were using blackmail and bribery in an attempt to force local officials to form a break-away region in the south, much like those in Donetsk and Luhansk - which Putin declared as 'independent' at the start of the war. Protection for the two eastern regions where pro-Russian separatists began fighting Ukrainian forces in 2014 was used as a pretext by Russia to start the invasion. Kherson, a vital Black Sea port of 290,000 residents, was the first major city to fall earlier this month.

    JOE Biden has ordered US troops, jets and helicopters to Eastern Europe in response to Vladimir Putin's invasion of rebel-held Ukraine.
