Russia’s War on Ukraine

Today Russian troops started to shell Mariupol. For an almost minute-to-minute account I suggest to follow Ukraine@war on twitter or visit his blog. Most probably a heavier attack will follow the coming days. To refresh your mind we will program our interviews with Dmytro and the lecture by Timothy Snyder.
