RUSSIA-UKRAINE LIVE: Unconfirmed reports Ukrainian security forces killed negotiator Denis Kireev, Boris Johnson issues six-point plan on how West can defeat Vladimir Putin as video shows Russian helicopter shot down
Boris Johnson has drawn up a six-point plan to defeat Vladimir Putin as he moves to assume leadership of global efforts to end the horror of war in Ukraine.
The Russian President faced an unprecedented wave of international fury yesterday for offering safe passage to Ukrainian refugees – only to bombard them with artillery as they fled.
Some 200,000 civilians had been set to leave the port city of Mariupol and 15,000 from Volnovakha in eastern Ukraine at 7am yesterday (UK time) as part of a temporary ceasefire deal overseen by the Red Cross.
