War in Ukraine | What you need to know this Thursday



Here’s what you need to know on this eighth day of fighting between Russia and Ukraine.

  • During the night from Thursday to Friday, Russian troops bombarded the largest nuclear power plant in Europe in Ukraine, Zaporijjia, located in Enerhodar, a city on the Dnieper River. This plant represents a quarter of the country’s electricity production.
  • After a second round of talks, Russia and Ukraine agreed to establish “humanitarian corridors” for the evacuation of civilians from combat zones. Russian forces have made gains in the south of the country and are threatening to cut off Ukraine’s access to the Black Sea.
  • “The worst is yet to come,” thinks French President Emmanuel Macron, who had a 90-minute telephone chat with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
  • On the eighth day of the invasion, more than a million people have fled Ukraine, according to the latest UN figures.

  • The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, wants to negotiate directly with Vladimir Putin, “the only way to stop the war”. If his country falls, Russia will attack Eastern Europe, he fears.
  • Canada will impose 35% import duties on products from Russia and Belarus and facilitate the arrival of Ukrainian refugees in the country.
