From the Independent:
‘They could do it, for them the life of the people [is] nothing,’ says Ukrainian president
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has warned “all of the countries of the world” need to be ready for Vladimir Putin using nuclear weapons.
Speaking from the country’s capital Kyiv, Mr Zelensky told CNN that the Russian president could also be prepared to use chemical weapons against Ukraine.
There are other things going on in the world these days, but I thought that one should be included. Below the fold are some of the other happenings.
