- 01:55Russia strikes Ukraine in biggest attack in weeksReuters VideosSTORY: Smouldering rubble, destroyed buildings and air raid siren. This is Kyiv on Thursday (21 September) after Russia launched its biggest missile attack in weeks across Ukraine. In the capital city, Oksana describes the moment of the blast. “The explosion woke me up. At first there was a red glare outside the window and then there was no window, and I was lying covered in broken glass. I heard people screaming and crying and I rushed outside. Then I went and found the cat. Thank God he is alive.” The strikes also damaged energy facilities and, with winter approaching, officials say the attack appears to be the start of a new air campaign against the Ukrainian power grid. Partial power cuts were reported in five Ukrainian regions and grid operator Ukrenergo says it was the first attack on power infrastructure in six months. The country has been racing for months to repair infrastructure after attacks last winter damaged nearly half of its energy system and forced grid operators to impose regular rolling power cuts. This year, Ukraine has better, Western-supplied air defenses, but still has the huge challenge of defending against attacks in such a big country. According to Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, Russia fired 43 cruise missiles at targets overnight. Ukrainian air defenses shot down 36 of them. In the capital seven people, including a girl aged nine, were injured. Mayor Vitali Klitshko reported that missile debris fell in the city center and that an infrastructure facility and several non-residential buildings were damaged, causing a fire. Injuries and deaths were also reported in blasts across Ukraine, from the city of Kherson to near the Polish border. Russia has not commented on the new air strikes, carried out as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy visits the United States for talks following the U.N. General Assembly.1 day ago

- 02:30Ukraine's Zelenskiy shores up support at UNReuters VideosSTORY: Ukraine's president on Wednesday joined the United Nations Security Council meeting in person for the first time since Russia's invasion. At the UN headquarters in New York, Volodymyr Zelenskiy sought support for Kyiv at a contentious meeting. “Ukraine exercises its right to self-defense, helping Ukraine with weapons in this exercise by imposing sanctions and exerting comprehensive pressure on the aggressor, as well as voting for relevant resolutions, would mean helping to defend the UN Charter.” The Ukrainian leader also echoed calls for reforming the UN, specifically the expansion of the 15-member Security Council. Despite dozens of meetings over the war, the council has been unable to take any action because Russia is a veto power. “Reform of such international institutions were made following tragedies, major wars. We should not wait for the aggression to be over. We need to act now. Our aspiration for peace should drive the reform.” Zelenskiy was placed at the same table as Russian diplomats, despite Moscow earlier protesting his appearance. But he left before the arrival of Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who showed up briefly to make a statement. Ukraine and Western countries have successfully isolated Russia diplomatically at the UN. During the Security Council meeting, many leaders took turns in pointing fingers at Moscow. “The Russian Federation has crossed the Rubicon...” “Russia is abusing its veto power..." “...And we support Ukraine's efforts to hold Russia to account." While the General Assembly has voted several times to condemn the invasion and demand Moscow withdraw its troops. Their argument: Russia has violated the 1945 UN Charter. But the Russian foreign minister accused the West of selectively using the UN Charter “solely based on their selfish geopolitical needs”. “This has resulted in a shaking of global stability as well as the worsening and fomenting of new hotbeds of tension. Risks of global conflict have heightened," Lavrov said. To shore up support for Ukraine, Zelenskiy on Wednesday met with more world leaders on the sidelines of the UN. He also pressed Kyiv's case for financial help with a group of business leaders. And on Thursday, he’s set to head for Washington DC, to meet U.S. President Joe Biden at the White House. Biden is expected to announce a new military aid package during Zelenskiy's visit.1 day ago
- 00:31Russia launches air attacks on cities across UkraineReuters VideosSTORY: Blasts were heard in Kyiv and the surrounding region after an air raid alert, Reuters witnesses said. Authorities reported sending rescue teams to several locations in the capital. Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said people were injured in Kyiv and Cherkasy regions and in the city of Kharkiv in the east during the attack that came early in the morning. Klymenko said a hotel and several shopping kiosks were damaged in Cherkasy in central Ukraine and seven people were injured. The emergency services posted a video on Telegram showing rescuers carrying out an injured man on a stretcher as a fire rages. The interior ministry and regional officials reported blasts in Cherkasy, Kharkiv, Khmelnytskiy, Rivne, Vinnytsia, Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk regions.1 day ago
- 00:49EU calls on China to help end Ukraine conflictReuters VideosSTORY: "Ukraine is a crime scene and the perpetrator is sitting in this very room," Michel said. "And I would like to particularly speak to the esteemed Chinese representative. You have warned Russia against the use of nuclear weapons, and we welcome this. And now, we are asking you. Let's go further. Let's join forces to persuade Russia to end this criminal war that's hurting so many. Let's join forces to convince Russia to respect the principles of the U.N. charter," he added. China has abstained from votes by the 193-member General Assembly that overwhelmingly demanded Moscow withdraw its troops from Ukraine and stop fighting. Russia invaded its neighbor in February 2022. China's abstentions appear to reflect a bid to stay on the diplomatic fence over the war in Ukraine. Beijing has said the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries must be respected, but - in a nod to Russia's unease about NATO - believes all security concerns should be addressed.1 day ago
