Britain’s Defence Ministry on Sunday affirmed that Russian forces are “targeting populated areas” in order “to break Ukrainian morale” after being surprised by “the scale and strength of the Ukrainian resistance.”

The UK’s latest Intelligence Update added that Russia’s advance has been slowed down by Ukraine targeting its supply lines.

The World Health Organisation has meanwhile confirmed that “several attacks” against health care facilities have taken place in Ukraine.

The key points to know

  • Ukraine’s statehood is in jeopardy and sanctions on Russia akin to declaring war, says Putin.
  • NATO’s failure to set up a no-fly zone over Ukraine is a “sign of weakness”, says Ukraine’s foreign minister.
  • NATO says such a move would risk a wider war in Europe. 
  • Ukraine’s president makes a ‘desperate plea’ to US lawmakers for planes and drones.
  • Russian forces advance on a third nuclear site. Radiation levels at Zaporizhzhya, Europe’s largest, are normal, says IAEA.
  • The next round of talks between Russia and Ukraine will take place on Monday. 
  • On Saturday, Russia said it would allow the evacuation of civilians from Mariupol and Volnovakha. But evacuations were postponed in Donetsk Oblast amid claims Russian troops had violated the ceasefire. 
  • The UN Human Rights Office said that 351 Ukrainian civilians have been killed since the beginning of the invasion.
  • More than 1.3 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia’s invasion began 10 days ago. 
  • Facebook and Twitter are blocked in Russia. Other independent media have also been forced off-air, while many foreign media have stopped their reporting from Russia because of a new law.

The British Defence Ministry said that Russia used similar tactics in Chechnya in 1999 and in Syria in 2016.
It said that Russia has been surprised by “the scale and strength of Ukrainian resistance” and slowed down by Ukraine targeting its supply lines.
