In Kyiv, we met 10 year-old Valeria Yezhova, the world checkers champion for her age, who is winning hearts across Ukraine for using her skills to raise money for Ukraine's troops. Spoiler: she destroyed me.
For all the declassified intel the USG has put out on Ukraine I’m trying to think of another satellite image they’ve released themselves. It’s all been commercial companies.…

Horrific images coming out of the Russian strike on Vinnytsia that has so far killed 12, including a child in a stroller. Vinnytsia is central Ukraine, nowhere near the fighting. This is terror.

Death toll in this morning’s Kharkiv shelling has risen to 6, and 31 wounded. The toll from Saturday’s Chasiv Yar attack in Donetsk is now 29.
Down the road a farmers market was bustling, and bursting with some of the nicest produce I’ve seen.
“HIMARS!” This guy, just meters from the destruction, was effusive in his thanks for western support.
South of Kharkiv the site of an overnight strike on a residential area. One hospitalized local officials say, a neighbor said it was a man’s head that was. injured.
Pretty extraordinary to go from this to that in minutes. People just trying to live their lives.
Just drove past a Saturday bachelorette party complete with a long white limo, balloons, sashes, etc. Life continues in Kharkiv as Russian bombs fall on the city. (Sadly zoomed past too fast for a pic)
A beautiful Saturday morning until the sound of the blast ripped across the city at 10am.…

We went with some intrepid Kharkiv postal service workers today to a frontline village where they handed out pensions. There we had a heartbreaking encounter with a woman who cried as she told us she watched her house get destroyed, saying, "I wish it was over for me."
Sirens, thuds, pitch black - Kharkiv feels pretty eerie.
Loud evening in Kharkiv - several thuds in the distance, one strike the governor says killed 3 and wounded 5 in a residential area earlier from Russian MLRS. Several rounds of air sirens.
Incredible destruction at Kharkiv’s Skovoroda National Pedagogical University, struck in an overnight attack early Wednesday. Staff was cleaning up; “it’s so painful,” one professor told me.
Great color from @shustry about the Zelensky family’s first responses and actions as Russia invaded.…
Hero Ukrainian medic Yulia Paievska, aka Taira, tells us the psychological and physical abuse she suffered in 3 months of captivity was torture. She was forcibly interrogated for a Russian propaganda film before being freed in a prisoner exchange last month. Our interview:
Arrived back in Ukraine. Feels fitting, with the US celebrating its independence today while this wonderful country fights for its own.
Today is the third anniversary of when Elizabeth Whelan went to the Trump White House and met with John Bolton and Fiona Hill about freeing her brother Paul Whelan. 3.5 years after his arrest he's still in a Russian prison.……

Whelan's brother David last week slammed DoJ for trying to prevent trades to get Paul back: “As we understand it, the US Department of Justice will not support the release of any foreign nationals in their custody to free wrongfully detained Americans."

Alexey Navalny is missing from the penal colony where he's been imprisoned. "He didn't show up for the meeting with his lawyers today. We have no further information on where Navalny is being taken,” aide Maria Pevchikh tweeted.
