Vladimir Putin's Russia bombs Ukrainian school packed with civilians killing up to 60
Ukraine has killed two people and another 60 are feared dead beneath the rubble.Russian forces shelled the village of Bilohorivka in the Luhansk region on Saturday afternoon which set a school on fire as about 90 people used it for shelter.Luhansk governor Serhiy Gaidai said 30 people were rescued from the flames but confirmed two lifeless bodies were found and 60 more people were yet to make it out of the burning debris alive.Belarus-based media outlet, Nexta, reported that those killed were children however officials in Ukraine have not backed the claims.Gaidai wrote in a Telegram post: "The fire was extinguished after nearly four hours, then the rubble was cleared, and, unfortunately, the bodies of two people were found. Sixty people were likely to have died under the rubble of buildings."The number of casualties is due to Vladimir Putin's army dropping a bomb on the exact building where "almost the whole village was hiding".In the nearby village of Shypilovo, 11 people are thought to have been trapped in the rubble of a destroyed house by more Russian shelling, Mr Gaidai said.The Russian military has been accused of committing war crimes for its persistent targeting of areas packed with civilian such as hospitals and schools, but Moscow has rejected the allegations.Since sending tanks into Ukraine on February 24, thousands of Ukrainians have been killed and 5 million have fled abroad as thriving cities are razed to the ground.

Hero Brit fighters trapped in bunker with starving Ukrainians in under-siege Mariupol
Russian claims to have captured Ukraine’s important Black Sea port of Mariupol, a determined rearguard of Ukrainian fighters remain in the ruined city – along with some 20 British volunteers.The British fighters, sheltering from the almost-constant Russian bombardment in underground bunkers, have vowed to “save the last bullet for themselves” rather than be taken alive.Hundreds of British Army veterans and others have rushed to Ukraine's defence and a few – like Notts-born Aiden Aslin – have been captured by the Russians.As many as 20,000 civilians in Mariupol are already believed to have been killed by Russian shells and bombs, and many more may die as food supplies run out.Russian leader Vladimir Putin has ordered his troops to surround the city’s industrial district and seal it off to starve out the defenders.A large force of Ukrainian defenders is holed up beneath the near-impregnable Azovstal steel works, along with an unknown number of civilians..Putin has abandoned plans to storm the factory and has ordered Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu to instead "block off this industrial area so that a fly couldn't get through".Conceding that his forces couldn’t enter the steelworks without sustaining heavy losses he added: "There is no need to climb into these catacombs and crawl underground through these industrial facilities."A British volunteer in Kyiv who had previously fought alongside the defenders of Mariupol told The Sun: “There are as many as 20 British lads still there and I fear for them.“Many are veterans of the conflict in the Donbas.
Brother hopes Brit war hero captured in Ukraine may come home safe as Russia demand swap
Ukraine after Russian forces claimed he was an enemy agent rather than a prisoner of war.The 27-year-old signed up for the Ukrainian marines in 2018 and has dual UK-Ukraine citizenship, with Russian state media claiming he was a mercenary "used [by the West] to perform various delicate tasks" – a claim he strongly denies.Currently, Russian law states that those who are suspected of spying face interrogation and even prison, whereas prisoners of war are released at the end of the conflict.Now, his brother Nathan Wood, 25, has revealed that his brother looked unharmed in a video that appears to suggest Kremlin officials are keen to exchange him for pro-Russian politician Viktor Medvedchuk, who is being held in Ukraine.Speaking to The Mirror, social worker Nathan said: "The Prime Minister is aware Aiden has been taken prisoner of war, it gives us a bit of hope but it is now a waiting game."There needs to be a positive outcome and now the Russians are talking about him potentially being freed in a prisoner swap, he is hopefully being with humanity."They have made their demands clear, hopefully, they are treating him like a prince, they don't want to show him with scratches and bruises because it could harm their chances."This could all takes, days, weeks, months but the Ukrainian and Russian governments appear to be talking and now we need Britain to offer some support."He went on to add that his family have to "be patient" but are "more confident now that Aiden will be released."Aiden was captured in Mariupol and has since appeared in videos being handcuffed and covered in bruises after claims he was being interviewed under duress for propaganda.
