🇺🇦 is ready for a tough battle with 🇷🇺 forces amassing in #Ukraine's east, President #Zelensky said Saturday.

This came a day after a #missile attack officials said killed more than 50 civilians trying to evacuate at #Kramatorsk rail station in the east.

@NRushworth reports⤵️
@NRushworth #Mariupol 🇺🇦 is a strategic port city that would let #Russia 🇷🇺 access the sea of Azov.

The #UN🇺🇳 General Assembly voted Thursday to suspend #Russia🇷🇺 from its leading #humanrights body over allegations that Russian soldiers in #Ukraine🇺🇦 engaged in rights violations.

It was a rare rebuke against a member of the UN Security Council. @ClaireARush reports⤵️
@ClaireARush #Ukrainian🇺🇦 President Volodymyr #Zelensky said on the Thursday that the situation in the town of #Borodyanka was "significantly more dreadful" than in nearby #Bucha, where Russian forces' suspected #killings of #civilians have been broadly condemned.

@smougin reports⤵️
@ClaireARush @smougin "The #Russians🇷🇺 have moved their troops from northwest and west of #Kyiv to Belarus. The idea is to then redeploy them to #Ukraine's🇺🇦 #Donbas region, where it’s expected 🇷🇺 will launch its heaviest assault yet."
