The final frames read, “We wanted to de-block Mariupol. We asked for tanks and jets to do that. We have not received feedback from those who could provide them.”

    Portland, it's a video. Choose the interests of the street. So she has a point.

    Accusations

    From world leaders to people on the ground, here are more accounts of the death and destruction in Ukraine.

    Co-operation

    Zelenskyy's pleas and Putin’s actions have galvanized countries across the world, including India, who is reliant on Russian military hardware and has long been criticized for remaining neutral in the face of Putin's invasion. Will Prime Minister Modi's promise to send Ukraine medicine be a firm enough stand against Russia?

    Retaliation

    Intelligence officials warn Biden's support for Ukraine may prompt Putin to meddle in U.S. politics, per the AP. "Officials believe [Putin] may see the U.S. backing of Ukraine's resistance as a direct affront to him, giving him further incentive to target another U.S. election."
