War in Ukraine: what you need to know
The last: A missile attack killed at least 50 people at a train station in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, as the exodus from the south and east of the country accelerated. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called the Kramatorsk strike “Russia’s new war crime” and vowed to hold perpetrators accountable.
More than 6,600 people fled besieged southern and eastern areas via humanitarian corridors on Friday, according to Kyiv, the highest number this week. The evacuations came as Russia is sending thousands more troops to eastern Ukraine, according to Washington, suggesting fighting would intensify there.
The fight: Russian forces continue to launch sporadic attacks against civilian targets in a number of Ukrainian towns. Ukrainian prosecutors have collected detailed testimonies from victims to investigate Russian war crimes.
Arms: Ukraine uses weapons such as Javelin anti-tank missiles and Switchblade “kamikaze” drones, supplied by the United States and other allies. Russia has used an array of weapons against Ukraine, some of which have drawn analysts’ attention and concern.
In Russia: Putin blocked the flow of information in Russia, where the war is not even called a war. The last independent bulletin in Russia has suspended its operations.
Pictures: Post-photographers have been in the field since the very beginning of the war. Here are some of their most powerful works.
