Russia Ramps Up Ukraine Attacks in Effort to Seize Strategically Key Port City

Moscow introduced a contemporary assault on the besieged southern Ukrainian town of Mariupol on Thursday, a day soon after a single of its planes bombed a maternity clinic, illustrating how Russia is ramping up a violent thrust to get strategic cities, at a superior expense for civilians.

Russian Overseas Minister Sergei Lavrov, after a assembly with his Ukrainian counterpart on Thursday, said the healthcare facility was a respectable goal simply because it was held by “local radical militias,” however Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov instructed reporters “we do not have obvious information” about the incident.
