Today on Sunday, March 20th, Russia allegedly bombed an art school where 400 civilians were sheltering in Mairuopol, a coastal city in the southeast of Ukraine. Russia has made significant gains in the north and eastern parts of the country, including the eastern Donbass regions under pro-Russian separatist control since 2014-15. The cities of Kyiv (capital), Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv in the north are facing intense Russian troop pressure, while Mariupol and Kherson are under Russian control.

In the eastern city of Kharkiv, Russian shelling has killed at least 5 people, according to Ukrainian authorities.
