Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine has continued into its 64th day. The following is the latest situation on April 28:

  • He had met with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow a few days earlier and said he wanted to help organize a humanitarian evacuation in the southern Ukraine port city of Mariupol
  • Russia’s state-owned Gazprom retaliated by cutting supplies to Poland and Bulgaria after they refused to pay in rubles
  • The move was widely condemned as extortion by political leaders, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the Kremlin denies it.European Commission President von der Leyen said it showed Russia was “unreliable” as an energy partner, while the White House said Russia was turning energy supplies into weapons
  • Putin has issued a fresh threat to the West, saying that any country that intervenes in Ukraine will face a “lightning” military response.The previous days, Western countries have stepped up their support for Ukraine
  • Kremlin warns that shipment of heavy weapons to Ukraine threatens Europe’s security
