At least 98 Ukrainian children have been killed by Putin’s army, and another two million have been forced from their homes. Meanwhile, the suggestion by Russian negotiators that they’d scale back the violence was followed by more violence. Here’s the latest from BBC.

+ “The administration is hopeful that divulging the finding could help prod Putin to reconsider his options in Ukraine. The war has ground to a bloody stalemate in much of the country, with heavy casualties and Russian troop morale sinking as Ukrainian forces and volunteers put up an unexpectedly stout defense.” Putin is being misled by advisers on Ukraine, US intelligence determines.

+ “Russian soldiers who seized the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster drove their armoured vehicles without radiation protection through a highly toxic zone called the Red Forest, kicking up clouds of radioactive dust, workers at the site said.” As if Russia’s lies about Chernobyl haven’t already been deadly enough.
