In just one moment, Ukrainians, some wrapped in flags, all driven to defend, responded when they saw a Russian vehicle approach.

“We are fighting for our rights, for our freedoms, for our life. and now we’re fighting for survival,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The U.N. estimates at least 102 civilians have died so far, but that figure likely underestimates the true toll.

Ukraine’s President accuses Russia of war crimes, which the Kremlin rejects, for bombing the city of Kharkiv.

The Russian military warns of more attacks.

Satellite images from late Monday show a 40-miles long Russian convoy approaching Ukraine’s capital.

The U.S. Secretary of State floated the idea Tuesday of kicking Russia off the U.N. human rights council.

“These are the human rights abuses this Council was created to stop. If we cannot come together now, when will we come together,” said U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
