Russo-Ukrainian War: Ukraine Refuses to Surrender to Mariupol, Russia Warns of “Kind of Catastrophe”: 10 Facts

Ukraine has rejected Russia’s call to hand over the port city of Mariupol, where residents are besieged with little food, water and power and fierce fighting shows little sign of abating.

Here are the 10 latest developments of the Russian invasion of Ukraine:

  1. Ukraine has refused a word to hand over the besieged port city of Mariupol to Russian troops, its deputy prime minister told Ukrainian media today. “There can be no talk of handing over weapons. We have already informed this to the Russian side,” Iryna Vereshchuk told the Ukrainska Pravda newspaper.

  2. Mariupol, a strategic, mostly Russian -speaking port in the southeast, has been one of the main targets of Moscow’s attacks. Capturing Mariupol will help Russian troops gain a land corridor to the Crimean peninsula annexed by Moscow from Ukraine in 2014.

  8. Ten million people-more than a quarter of the population-have now left their homes in Ukraine as a result of Russia’s “crushing” war, the United Nations refugee chief said Sunday. More than 3.3 million of them have fled the country.

  9. Oil prices soared $ 2 on Monday as Ukrainian troops dug in against a massive Russian offensive, while major oil producers reported they were struggling to produce quotas allocated under supply agreements.

  10. Three U.S. volunteer fighters who have risked their lives alongside Ukrainian soldiers say they have joined the fight against the Russian military to stop the suffering of civilians and in the name of freedom.
