Posted at 18:5918:59 Russia significantly behind schedule - UK defence secretary UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace EPACopyright: EPA Earlier we heard from Russian President Vladimir Putin who said his "special military operation" in Ukraine - aka an invasion - was "going according to plan". UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has a very different take. He says Russia is significantly behind schedule. "Despite the horrendous daily destruction and bombardment of civilian areas, and a number of these cities, Ukrainians come out in the daytime, they gauge their forces, they drive them back in some cases, and they continue to fight," he told the BBC's defence correspondent Jonathan Beale. "Russia has been accumulating a significant number of not only deaths, but also desertions and people surrendering, and a significant number of armour and equipment has been destroyed," he added. He also pointed to Russian forces' failure to take the capital, Kyiv - and poor logistical planning around vehicles and food for troops. Of President Putin, Mr Wallace said: "He's a man wrapped in sanctions of his own making. He's a man who has broken every international law. He's a man more and more isolated."

Some in the US are pushing for even more sanctions targeted at allies of Russian leader Vladimir Putin. As part of that effort, a bipartisan group of US lawmakers introduced on Thursday a unique bill that would empower the Biden administration to use the proceeds from sanctioned assets to help Ukraine. "Typically, sanctioned assets are frozen, not permanently confiscated, an appropriate safeguard under more normal circumstances," said Representative Tom Malinowski, who is co-sponsoring the legislation. "But in this extraordinary case, we think it would be fitting and right to use the wealth that has supported Putin to help the country he is destroying." Malinowski added that seeing the luxury apartments, villas and yachts of oligarchs seized would "give Ukrainians and Russians who hate Putin a huge boost" in a war that is being partly defined by morale.

Speaking at a meeting of the Russian Security Council, he praised Russian troops for what he described as their "bravery" in Ukraine. In the televised address shown on rolling news channel Rossiya 24, he listed a number of examples of Russian soldiers' "heroic" actions during the fighting against what he called "neo-Nazi" forces in Ukraine. He added that the families of Russian soldiers who had been killed during the fighting would be compensated. It comes after Moscow yesterday said that 498 of its soldiers had been killed so far in Ukraine - the first time it's put a number on how many of its troops have been killed since the invasion started. Ukraine says that number is far higher. Article share tools ShareView more share options Share this post Copy this link www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-60582327?ns_mchannel...

His claim comes despite many analysts suggesting the invasion has not gone to plan. In a televised speech, he accused Ukrainian forces of taking "thousands of foreign citizens hostage" and using civilians as "human shields" - he provided no evidence for these claims. He added that Russians and Ukrainians were "one people" and said he would "destroy this 'anti-Russia' created by the West".

NEW Posted at 14:4214:42 BREAKING Mayor compares Mariupol blockade to Nazi siege Mariupol strap BBCCopyright: BBC The mayor of Mariupol says Russian troops encircling the southern port city have created a situation similar to the deadly Nazi siege of St Petersburg (formerly Leningrad) in World War Two. "They are trying to create a blockade here, just like in Leningrad," said Vadym Boichenko. The city's mayor says Russian troops have cut off the city's electricity, food, water and heating. He said "they couldn't find a way to break us. So now they are trying to prevent us from repairing electricity, water and heating supply". Russian forces destroyed a train connection so they can't evacuate civilians, he adds. Temperatures are forecast to drop to -2C (28 Fahrenheit) this coming weekend.

Anna Holligan BBC News Hague correspondent Russia faces a war crimes investigation after a record referral from 39 countries. It's evidence of international concern but it's more than just symbolic, it means the investigation can begin immediately. In fact, the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Karim Khan told the BBC he has already despatched a team to the region, to start gathering and preserving any evidence of atrocities that fall within the court's jurisdiction - which covers war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, anything that violates the Geneva Conventions. For example, the indiscriminate shelling of residential areas, deliberately targeting civilians or buildings that have no military link; like the concert venue in Kharkiv, and TV tower in Kyiv. Plus, the use of weapons that are imprecise and could result in civilian casualties, like cluster munitions or vacuum bombs, which Ukraine's ambassador to the US accused Moscow of deploying - an allegation the Kremlin has denied. The ICC investigators will be collecting clues to build a picture on the ground, establish a chain of command and eventually bring charges against the people at the top giving the orders and orchestrating this invasion. Russia isn't a member of the ICC so any Russian nationals would have to be extradited to face justice in The Hague. But as history tells us, leaders who seem all powerful, untouchable today, may not be so tomorrow.

Posted at 13:2413:24 Protests continue in Russia - but what effect might they have? Jenny Hill BBC correspondent in Moscow A young woman with her hands up is escorted away by two police officers in Saint Petersburg Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images Every day since Russia invaded Ukraine, people have protested in the street, disgusted by the aggression perpetrated in the name of their country. Many are dragged off and detained by police; this morning the authorities warned again that taking part in an unsanctioned protest (protests are rarely sanctioned here) where there is "violence" can result in up to eight years in prison. The West hopes that popular discontent, exacerbated by public anger as sanctions start to take effect, might be enough to deter Vladimir Putin from his course. It’s hard to see, in the short term at least, how that will happen. The Kremlin is stifling independent reporting and state TV, which does not show the full extent of hostilities, parrots its narrative: that this is not a war, but a "special military operation" to - in its (unjustifiable) words - "de-Nazify" the country. The Kremlin celebrates Russian soldiers killed in action as heroes. The pain imposed by sanctions will, presumably, be presented as another example of Western aggression. The other calculation - that those sanctions and international isolation might catalyse other more influential figures to remonstrate with Putin - seems not impossible but still rather fanciful at this stage; most analysts acknowledge that the Russian president has made himself so powerful that few dare stand up to him.

He says he joined up last week following the invasion, having previously served between 2015 and 2018 in the Donbas conflict. "The situation right now is controllable, we’re controlling it," he says. "But the Russians are committing literal military crimes. "They’re committing air assaults on parts of our city which don’t have any military targets there." Andrew Licholit Andrew LicholitCopyright: Andrew Licholit He says the Russians are using people in the city to place marks on targets for strikes and says one of the militia's roles is to track these people down and capture them if possible. "Right now, I know that we are fighting a big, powerful army. But this is our home and we don't have anywhere to go. We don't have anywhere to run. And actually we don’t want to," he says.

It has been a week since Russia invaded Ukraine and attacks are intensifying on key cities - although only one major city has fallen. Here's some of what has happened today: Russian forces have taken control of the key port city of Kherson, in the south of Ukraine. It is the first major city to be captured by Russian troops More than a million people have fled Ukraine since the invasion began last Thursday, the UN says, with more than 500,000 of those heading to neighbouring Poland An investigation into possible war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine has been launched by the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague Several cities have come under intense shelling, including Mariupol - where the mayor has warned that the wounded cannot be helped due to the sustained bombardments Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has said that a third world war would be nuclear, but he says this is not something Russians are thinking about The capital, Kyiv, remains in government control, although there have been several large explosions, and a large Russian armoured convoy remains some distance away - with the US saying it has stalled due to fuel shortages Article share tools ShareView more share options Share this post Copy this link www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-60582327?ns_mchannel...

ICC chief prosecutor Karim Khan says he opened an immediate investigation after being urged to do so by 39 nations. It will cover allegations of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide, and would extend to Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, he said. Neither Russia nor Ukraine are members of the ICC but Kyiv has accepted the court's jurisdiction. Khan said it is important that an investigation take place: "Directing attacks against civilians and civilian objects amounts to a war crime. That's very clear. "And even if attacks are aimed at military objectives but the weapons used are wide-use weapons that are not precise, it may also amount to a war crime as they are likely to cause excessive civilian harm."

Speaking to Radio 5 Live, he says he doesn't have any experience of fighting - but wants to "defend what's ours, defend our country". "Putin has made it much easier for Ukrainians to join [the military reservists] because he's decided Ukraine never existed," he says. "I have a gun and I'm prepared to use it." 10:11 Get ready to pay reparations, Zelensky tells Russians And another line from the Ukrainian president: after days of shelling in Ukraine's cities, Zelensky vows that the country will be rebuilt - and says Russia will learn about "reparations". "Even if you destroy all our Ukrainian cathedrals and churches, you will not destroy our faith, our sincere belief in Ukraine and God, belief in people," he says. "We will rebuild every single house, every single street, every single city." "And we are telling Russia - learn the words 'reparations' and 'contributions'. You will pay back fully to us for what you've done against our state, against our every single Ukrainian."

He says Putin should defend the Russian-speaking people - not around the whole world - "but in your home". "There are quite a few of them there too. About 150 million." This appears to be a reference to Moscow's claim that their action is in defence of Russian-speaking people in parts of Ukraine.

Analysis Posted at 10:0310:03 The most dangerous moments still lie ahead Fergal Keane BBC News, Lviv The most dangerous moments of this conflict are ahead. The Russian advance is going slower and meeting far greater resistance than President Putin expected. There are severe problems of logistics, command, morale and fighting effectiveness. But the Russians will grind on. As they do the civilian casualties in areas hit by shelling will mount. While Western sanctions and boycotts have shown a rare degree of unanimity they will take time to have an effect. They will not stop this war. That is because it has become an existential struggle for Vladimir Putin. If he loses he knows his days in power are surely numbered. The possibility of being overthrown or facing an international criminal tribunal will be on his mind. His goal is to remove the government in Kyiv and install a puppet regime. Anything short of that leaves him vulnerable to an unending resistance in Ukraine. To those who know the country and how it has changed over the past eight years, his goal of suppression seems very unrealistic, even if he gains a short-term military victory. Still, at this stage, he has every reason to continue prosecuting his war, however great the cost in lives. The Ukrainians have shown themselves to be more than savvy in the information war. They are quick to adapt and are innovative in the military confrontations. They fight as people who fear to lose their homeland to a foreign invader. But facing a military force with immense superiority in numbers, their best hope is to pull the Russians into a draining war of attrition. As more cities are shelled and Russia piles suffering on civilians, as details of war crimes emerge, how do the allies respond when sanctions cannot make the artillery fall silent? Having ruled out a military involvement, for fear of a horrendous wider European war, the West will have to consider how it responds to the sight of besieged cities under Russian bombardment. There are no easy answers. We are truly in an unknown landscape.

He repeats the Russian claim that the Ukrainian government is a neo-Nazi regime and says gangs are looting towns and cities, including in Mariupol. The BBC has seen no evidence to support these claims. Lavrov also says the Ukrainians are "now trying to use civilians as human shields". He repeatedly refers to Hollywood and says that people should not "just look at this Hollywood movie" written by the Western media "where there is an ultimate evil". The Russian foreign minister also says that Nato is trying to bolster the West's security at the cost of Russia's. He compares the US to Napoleon and Hitler, saying "back in the days, Napoleon and Hitler had a goal to subjugate Europe - now Americans do so". He says the cancelling of the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline "shows the place" of the EU, suggesting the US was behind the decision.

Posted at 9:489:48 More than 575,000 Ukrainians have fled to Poland As we have been reporting, more than one million people have fled Ukraine since the invasion, according to the UN. The EU estimates that up to four million people may try to leave the country in total. Poland has so far taken in more than 575,000 people since the conflict began, the Polish Border Guard agency says. The agency said 95,000 people had entered Poland from Ukraine on Wednesday alone, slightly down from Monday’s record high of 100,000. By 06:00 GMT today, another 27,100 people had crossed the border, it added. Poland is home to a large Ukrainian community that is estimated to be between one and two million, and many people fleeing the war have gone to stay with family or friends. Those with nowhere to stay are being transported to makeshift accommodation centres in fire stations and sports halls across the country. Many Poles are also offering to house refugees in their own homes.

He says other locals had been approaching the soldiers on the street and telling them to leave. "People are not afraid of the soldiers – in our souls we are not afraid of Russia. "The soldiers are saying: 'Guys, we don't like the situation too – we will not touch you and maybe in a couple of days we will leave, we are waiting for an order'. "From their behaviour it’s clear they're unhappy to be here." He says the Ukrainian flag remains above the city's government building. "It's a strange situation when the city is occupied but nothing apart from the Russian army [presence] shows it’s under control."

Posted at 8:278:27 France asks citizens to leave Russia The French government is telling its citizens to leave Russia in light of the escalating conflict if their presence there is not "essential". Other countries have similar travel advisories in place. The UK Foreign Office "advises against all travel to the whole of Russia" due to difficulties in leaving the country and what it describes as the "increased volatility" of the Russian economy. The US State Department is advising the same. It cites multiple factors including "the potential for harassment against US citizens by Russian government security officials".

Posted at 8:158:15 Explosions now the soundtrack of Kyiv Lyse Doucet Chief International Correspondent, in Kyiv It’s day eight of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Just past midnight in Kyiv, the air raid siren blared yet again. The quiet in the dead of night was shattered by several large explosions. This is the soundtrack of this city now. In a capital where many can’t sleep, images were posted on social media of a huge orange fireball lighting the sky. The day dawned very cold, grey. It’s another morning where residents of Kyiv hear that Moscow's mammoth armoured convoy on the edge of city is still stalled. "The column has made little discernible progress in over three days," Ukraine’s defence ministry said in a statement. Reports speak of possible shortages of food and fuel, of wheels stuck in the mud, of restive Russian forces, and Ukrainian resistance. On the rim of a beleaguered city, there are reports of heavy fighting and roads are strewn with burnt and blackened carcasses of military vehicles. Across Ukraine, mayors send updates of their cities' desperate plight. Mayor Igor Kolykhaiev, who once presided over the southern port city of Kherson, posted a message on Facebook informing residents that the Ukrainian flag still flies over their city, but there were no Ukrainian forces. He told invading troops, who now control the first major city, "not to shoot people". Mayor Vadym Boychenko of Mariupol, now under intense shelling and a deepening humanitarian catastrophe, reported that Russian attacks were being repelled "with dignity". More than a million Ukrainians have fled; many more keep fighting as Russia advances and attacks with devastating force in the north, east, and south of the country.

Posted at 8:088:08 More on Russia and Belarus Paralympics ban Paralympics in Beijing Thomas Lovelock for OIS/PACopyright: Thomas Lovelock for OIS/PA Some more details now on the breaking news that athletes from Russia and Belarus have both been banned from competing in the 2022 Winter Paralympics in Beijing, due to start tomorrow. A statement on Thursday from the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) said the "situation in the athlete villages is escalating and ensuring the safety of athletes has become untenable". The initial IPC decision to allow 71 Russians and 12 Belarusians to compete as neutrals drew heavy criticism. "We are very firm believers that sport and politics should not mix," IPC president Andrew Parsons said in a statement today. "However, by no fault of its own the war has now come to these Games and behind the scenes many governments are having an influence on our cherished event."

Posted at 8:008:00 We can't even take wounded from the streets - Mariupol mayor Will Vernon BBC News, Moscow The port city of Mariupol on the Black Sea coast continues to come under sustained attack. The mayor of the city has made a desperate video address, saying: "We cannot even take the wounded from the streets, from apartments, since the shelling does not stop." The Russian Defence Ministry has urged civilians to leave the city via a so-called ‘green corridor.’ Today, a pro-Russian rebel spokesman said they would launch "targeted strikes" against the city unless Ukrainian forces there surrender.

The main body of the military column, which is approaching the capital from its north, "remains over 30km from the centre of the city having been delayed by staunch Ukrainian resistance, mechanical breakdown and congestion". The defence ministry update also adds that the cities of Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Mariupol remain under Ukrainian control. On Russia's casualty figures, the UK predicts that the actual numbers are "considerably higher" than the 498 killed and 1,597 wounded declared so far by Moscow.

Posted at 6:466:46 Russians must pay 30% commission on foreign currency In a sign that Russia's central bank is trying to stop people from selling their roubles, it has reportedly made it more expensive for individuals to buy foreign currencies. It has imposed a 30% commission on such purchases on currency exchanges, Reuters reports. The central bank did not immediately reply to the news agency for a request for comment. Yesterday Russian President Vladimir Putin announced emergency measures to try and prop up the Russian rouble, including banning Russians from transferring money abroad, after the currency crashed to a record low. In recent days many ordinary Russians have been racing to withdraw cash.
