- 01:11Bodies of British volunteers returned in UkraineReuters VideosSTORY: The bodies of British volunteer aid workers Andrew Bagshaw and Chris Parry have been returned to Ukraine, a Ukrainian official said on Saturday (February 4). That's as Russia and Ukraine traded almost 200 prisoners in a swap announced separately by both sides. Parry and Bradshaw were killed during an attempted humanitarian evacuation in eastern Ukraine, Parry's family has said. Sky News reported Bagshaw's family as saying the volunteers were killed while trying to rescue an elderly woman from the town of Soledar. Ukrainian police had said the two men were reported missing on January 7. Soledar, which had a pre-war population of 10,000, became the epicentre of Russia's assault for several weeks in the beginning of January. Last month Ukraine confirmed its troops had withdrawn from the town. The Ukrainian president's chief of staff announced that the bodies had been handed over. He also said on social media that 116 Ukrainian prisoners of war had returned. Russian news agencies cited Moscow's defense ministry saying 63 Russian prisoners had been freed.2 days ago

- 02:45EU offers Ukraine support but no quick accessionReuters VideosSTORY: Air raid sirens sounded across Ukraine on Friday (February 3) as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy hosted European Union leaders to discuss more sanctions on Russia. And Ukraine's prospects of joining the bloc. With thick snow falling, commission president Ursula von der Leyen visited an EU-backed energy-efficient light bulb scheme to reduce demand on a power grid damaged by Russian attacks. And foreign policy chief Josep Borrell toured a demining site. It was a show of support as the first anniversary of Russia's invasion approaches on February 24. But the EU is not expected to fast-track Ukraine's membership while it is at war, as Kyiv wants. It applied to join the bloc days after the invasion. Instead, the process is likely to take years - EU officials have listed multiple membership requirements, from political and economic stability to adopting various EU laws. "If there was needed a living proof that Russia is suffering a massive strategic failure, but Ukraine is withstanding, and is building its path towards the European Union, well, the fact that we are here, for the 24th summit, Ukraine-European Union, amidst the war, but we are building, discussing and developing the future of Ukraine in the European Union -- that is speaking more than a thousand words." Zelenskiy wants more punitive measures against Russia by the European Union, but the next set of sanctions the bloc is preparing for the anniversary are expected to fall short of his demands. He also stressed the need to tighten sanctions. “We are very interested in making sure that Russia does not have a chance to restore its military capacity. Sanctions have slowed down this process. We have a clear understanding of what number of missiles were produced before the full-fledged invasion and what is happening now thanks to the EU, U.S., British sanctions and sanctions by other partners. That is why it is very important for us to make sure they cannot find ways to bypass sanctions, something they do thanks to other countries.” As well as the next round of sanctions, they discussed more arms, money and energy support, better access for Ukrainian products in the EU market, and efforts to prosecute Russian war crimes.3 days ago

- 02:27Putin evokes Stalingrad to predict victory in UkraineReuters VideosSTORY: Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday evoked a famous World War Two victory over the Nazis to rally his nation over the nearly year-long invasion of Ukraine, while officials in Kyiv warned of an ominous new attack. Speaking in Volgograd, formerly known as Stalingrad, where the Soviet army defeated Nazi forces in a pivotal battle 80 years ago, Putin lambasted Germany for helping to arm Ukraine, and said again that he was ready to draw on Russia's entire arsenal, which includes nuclear weapons. PUTIN: "Those who are betting they will defeat Russia on the battlefield clearly don't understand that modern war with Russia will be quite different for them. We don't send our tanks to their borders, but we have the means to respond, and it won't end with the use of armoured vehicles." As Putin celebrated, rescue workers in Ukraine Thursday tended to civilians wounded when a Russian missile destroyed apartments in Kramatorsk, killing at least three people and trapping others under rubble, according to police. Moscow has routinely denied targeting civilians. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy urged European leaders visiting Kyiv on Thursday to strengthen sanctions on Russia, warning that Putin was gathering forces and planning a major attack. "We all know that Russia is concentrating its forces for a revenge attempt not only against Ukraine but also against the free Europe and free world. In order to defeat such an enemy, success on the battlefield alone is not enough." European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Thursday the EU would turn up the pressure on Russia. The West has imposed sweeping punitive measures since Russia's nearly year-old invasion of Ukraine that has devastated cities, killed tens of thousands of people, forced millions to flee their homes and shaken the global economy. Von der Leyen said there would be more military, financial and political aid before the Feb. 24 invasion anniversary. She also announced the creation of an international center in The Hague to prosecute crimes of aggression in Ukraine.4 days ago

- 01:32Ukraine 'to build support for Russia ban' at OlympicsReuters VideosSTORY: Vadim Huttsait told Reuters it would be "unacceptable" for Russian and Belarusian athletes to take part under a neutral flag, after the International Olympic Committee opened the door to them competing in qualifiers for the Paris Games. "This is unacceptable for us, it is impossible for us at a time when the full-scale war is going on, when our athletes, our soldiers are defending our homeland, our land, defending their homes, their families, their parents," he said in an interview. He spoke in the Sports Ministry in Kyiv, standing by a wall decorated with the portraits of Ukrainian athletes who have been killed in the war launched by Russia last February. The Russian foreign ministry has said any attempt to squeeze Moscow out of international sport because of what it calls its special military operation in Ukraine is "doomed to fail".6 days ago
- 01:37Biden says no F-16s for Ukraine as Russia claims gainsReuters VideosSTORY: The U.S. will not provide F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, President Joe Biden said on Monday. His comments come after the U.S. and Germany announced plans last week to provide Ukraine with heavy tanks, ending weeks of diplomatic deadlock on the issue. Ukraine's defense minister said he will now push for Western fourth-generation fighter planes, the F-16 included. France and Poland have signaled they are willing to entertain such a request, but when asked about the issue, Biden was categorical. REPORTER: "Will the United States provide F-16s to Ukraine?" BIDEN: "No." Biden's remarks could put him at odds with other Western allies. Just hours earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters in the Hague that "by definition, nothing is excluded" when it comes to military assistance. Poland's prime minister also did not rule out a possible supply of F-16s, though he said any such transfer would take place "in complete coordination" with NATO countries. All this comes as Biden is reportedly planning a trip to Europe to coincide with the first anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Biden confirmed on Monday that he would visit Poland, QUOTE: "SOON". Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is urging the West to hasten delivery of its promised weapons so his forces can go on the offensive. He accuses Russia of relentlessly attacking the east as revenge for Ukraine's resistance. Meanwhile, the Kremlin has warned any additional supplies of Western weaponry to Ukraine could escalate the conflict.7 days ago
- 01:42Italian artist brings uplifting murals to UkraineReuters VideosSTORY: These murals aim to bring messages of hope and freedom to Ukraine Italian artist Tvboy painted them as part of the 'Ukraine Street Art project' during a week-long visit organized by a humanitarian organization (Vadym and Maria Moskalenko, Local residents) "I believe we need such art while the war is ongoing. People should see what we've been through and remember that the war is not over. People should keep in mind what price we've paid so far." "These murals depict patriotism and the invincibility of our spirit. We are patriots and this is what we need right now." (Natalia Vyshnivska, Blogger) "These artworks help us and even raise our mood a bit. We can see a balloon with 'freedom' written on it, which is something Ukraine will definitely get. Over there is a woman (depicted) sewing a Ukrainian flag, a symbol for all the volunteers and other people that support our troops, all believing in victory."1 week ago
- 00:42S.Korea should step up Ukraine military aid: NATOReuters VideosSTORY: Stoltenberg was speaking in Seoul, the first stop on a trip that will also include Japan and is aimed at strengthening ties with Western allies in Asia in the face of the war in Ukraine and rising competition with China. Speaking at the Chey Institute for Advanced Studies, he thanked South Korea for its non-lethal aid to Ukraine, but urged it to do more, adding there is an "urgent need" for ammunition. South Korea has signed major deals providing hundreds of tanks, aircraft and other weapons to NATO member Poland since Russia invaded Ukraine. But President Yoon Suk-yeol has said a South Korean law that forbids supplying weapons to countries engaged in conflict makes it difficult to send arms to Ukraine.1 week ago
