The United Nations General Assembly has voted to suspend Russia from the Human Rights council as its invasion of Ukraine appears to be shiftingamid more evidence of atrocities.

NATO leaders hold a critical meeting to decide how to move forward.

“The sickening images and accounts coming out of Bucha and other parts of Ukraine have only strengthened our collective resolve unit,” said Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Meanwhile, in the warzone, Ukranians are burying their dead, bracing for attack and digging through the rubble. It’s all part of daily life in Ukraine’s eastern region while the Russian military continues its offensive against Ukraine and forces push east.

On Thursday in Brussels, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba issued a plea for help following a meeting of NATO foreign affairs ministers.

“Either you help us now and I’m speaking about days, not weeks,” said Dmytro, “or your help will come too late.”

Ukranian officials say more fighting is underway in the east, while western nations debate any additional sanctions and pledge more aid to Ukraine.The attacks appear to have no end in sight.

This war may last for weeks, but also months and possibly also for years and therefore we need to prepare for the long haul,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
