The BBC has launched a new shortwave radio service in Ukraine to ensure the resilience of its news operations in Ukraine and Russia, the corporation has announced. The new broadcasts will make four hours of World Service English news available every day and will reach audiences in Ukraine and parts of Russia. Listeners in the area will be able to tune into the broadcasts at 15735 kHz from 16:00-18:00 GMT and 5875 kHz from 22:00-00:00 GMT. Director-General Tim Davie said in a statement: “It’s often said truth is the first casualty of war. In a conflict where disinformation and propaganda is rife, there is a clear need for factual and independent news people can trust – and in a significant development, millions more Russians are turning to the BBC. “We will continue giving the Russian people access to the truth, however we can."

NEW Posted at 22:3122:31 ICC opens war crimes inquiry Karim Khan speaks to reporters Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has announced he has opened an investigation into potential war crimes by Russia during its invasion of Ukraine. Karim Khan wrote that in a "preliminary examination of the Situation in Ukraine, my Office had already found a reasonable basis to believe crimes within the jurisdiction of the Court had been committed, and had identified potential cases that would be admissible". "No individual in the Ukraine situation has a licence to commit crimes within the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court," Khan said. The chief prosecutor said on Monday he intended to seek authorisation from the court's presidency to open the inquiry, but a referral by the UK and 38 other nations to the court meant he now intended to launch the investigation immediately.

Live Reporting Edited by Chris Giles Get involved Get involved Send an email to [email protected] Posted at 22:0222:02 US postpones ICBM test launch in move to lower nuclear tensions A Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launch Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images The Pentagon has delayed this week's scheduled test launch of a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. The move will signal "how seriously we take our nuclear responsibilities at a particularly tense time", spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Wednesday. Over the weekend, Russian leader Vladimir Putin placed his country's nuclear forces on high alert. Kirby said the US has not taken any similar steps, slamming Putin for "his unhelpful and unnecessary rhetoric". He stressed the postponement would not impact America's nuclear posture or readiness in any meaningful way. Several ICBM tests take place in the US each year and are often planned a few years in advance.

Posted at 21:5921:59 Russian officers could end up in court, UK warns ICC Logo Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images More now on the news that Russia has been referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) by 38 different countries over suspected war crimes committed during its invasion of Ukraine. In a statement issued on Wednesday evening, the UK foreign office said that it has "led efforts to bring together allies", including all 27 members of the EU, Canada, New Zealand and Switzerland, to report Vladimir Putin's regime to the court. Dominic Raab, the UK's Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Secretary, said in a statement: "As a founder member of the International Criminal Court, the UK is willing to provide the necessary technical assistance to support successful convictions." "Any Russian leader or officer carrying out orders that amount to war crimes should know they face ending up in the dock of a court and ultimately in prison," Raab added. Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said that Putin's regime has "indiscriminately" targeted civilians and added the "UK will work closely with allies to ensure justice is done". While Russia is a signatory of the Geneva Convention, the international treaty that defines war crimes, it withdrew from the ICC in 2016 after it classified the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula as an occupation. It means that individuals charged by the court will have to be detained in countries that accept its jurisdiction, perhaps confining Putin to Russia and allied states for the rest of his life.

BBC France's President Emmanuel Macron has been giving a televised address to the nation, denouncing Russia's "lie" that it is fighting Nazism in Ukraine and condemning it as the "aggressor". He says that while Nato is not in conflict with Russia, Europe has entered a "change of era". In response, Macron says France will increase spending on defence while he advocates for greater European energy independence. "The war in Europe no longer belongs to our history books: it is there, in front of our eyes," Macron says. He praises the unity of the European response, adding: "It must now agree to pay the price for peace, freedom and democracy."

Posted at 18:4618:46 US ambassador calls UN vote 'historic' UN delegates applaud after the resolution was passed Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images The US ambassador to the UN has called Wednesday's vote to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine "historic". Linda Thomas-Greenfield tweeted the resolution, which was supported by 141 nations, represented an "overwhelming vote in defence of Ukraine and the UN Charter". She had earlier called on delegates to vote in favour of the motion if they believed countries "have a right to sovereignty and territorial integrity". Meanwhile, Samantha Power, director of US Aid and a former UN ambassador under Barack Obama, tweeted the vote marks a "global rebuke of historic proportions". "Putin is isolated to an unprecedented degree," she wrote. "Even his longstanding partners are condemning this invasion." Just five countries - Russia, Belarus, Syria, North Korea and Eritrea - voted against the resolution at the General Assembly's first emergency meeting since 1997.

Posted at 18:3218:32 BREAKING Abramovich to sell Chelsea and 'donate proceeds to war victims' Billionaire Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich says he will sell Chelsea FC, promising to donate the net proceeds to a charitable foundation for the benefit of "all victims of the war in Ukraine". "This includes providing critical funds towards the urgent and immediate needs of victims, as well as supporting the long-term work of recovery," he said in a statement. Abramovich, who has denied close financial links to Russian President Vladimir Putin or the Kremlin but has come under increasing scrutiny in recent days, says the sale will not be fast-tracked. He says he will not be asking for the loans of £1.5bn he has made to the club to be repaid. Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called today for the 55-year-old to face sanctions, saying he is a "person of interest to the Home Office because of his links to the Russian state".

Posted at 18:1618:16 Who voted against condemning the invasion? Five countries voted against condemning Russia's invasion at the emergency UN General Assembly in New York. Unsurprisingly, one was the Russian Federation itself. But who were the others? Equally unsurprisingly, Belarus also opposed the motion. A long-time Russian ally, the small country is described by analysts as Moscow's "client state". Some Russian troops invaded Ukraine from Belarusian territory. Another to oppose was Syria - whose leader Bashar al-Assad relied on large-scale Russian military assistance to stay in power during Syria's civil war. Eritrea in the Horn of Africa also opposed, as did North Korea in Asia. However China - which earlier this year joined Russia in opposing further Nato expansion - abstained. Last week it abstained during a similar vote in the UN Security Council. Read more - The Ukraine crisis is a major challenge for China.

Posted at 17:5917:59 Why it's so difficult to count victims in war One challenge in this conflict has been to independently confirm an accurate number of victims. Russia and Ukraine both say they have killed thousands of opposing troops. Now Moscow says nearly 500 of its soldiers have been killed, while Ukraine has not yet given an updated figure for military casualties but says at least 2,000 civilians have died. Why should we be sceptical about claims? In a war, countries use information as part of their strategy. It helps galvanise support for a cause or, in the case of losses, opposition to it. So there can be a lot of disinformation around. Ukraine, which has enjoyed widespread support from countries around the world, is keen to show the scale of the destruction and human suffering caused by Russia's unprovoked aggression. For Russia, news of mass casualties among Russian troops, and the Ukrainian population, could potentially spread the anti-war sentiment even further and turn into an existential threat to President Vladimir Putin's rule. So who is a reliable source? The UN and human rights groups are often the go-to sources for accurate estimates. But they too have been struggling. Many of their teams have had to relocate and the security situation means that in many cases they are unable to visit places attacked to investigate them. Numbers are released only after workers corroborate information from multiple sources, including survivors, witnesses, open source investigation, and reports from authorities or other organisations. That takes time, and that is why UN figures are often below other estimates, including those from governments. On Tuesday, the agency estimated that at least 136 civilians had been killed so far. But the real number, spokeswoman Liz Throssell warned, was "likely to be much higher".

Posted at 17:4417:44 BREAKING Georgia to apply to join EU immediately - ruling party Georgia - a former Soviet state on the eastern shore of the Black Sea - will "immediately" apply for EU membership, its ruling party Georgian Dream says. It comes a day after the European Parliament backed Ukraine's bid to apply for EU membership. Georgian Dream's Chairman Irakli Kobakhidze told reporters he was calling on the EU "to review our application in an urgent manner and to make the decision to grant Georgia the status of an EU membership candidate". Georgia has seen big demonstrations against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Russia has controlled two Georgian regions - South Ossetia and Abkhazia - since 2008, when Russian forces ousted Georgian troops from them. It followed a Georgian attempt to recapture South Ossetia, which had fought a separatist war against Georgia in the 1990s. Read more about Georgia.

Posted at 17:3417:34 Kharkiv will hold, Mayor says Mayor Igor Terekhov BBCCopyright: BBC The mayor of the besieged eastern city of Kharkiv says Russian shelling is inflicting heavy casualties on the civilian population, but he's vowing that the city will not fall to Vladimir Putin's invasion force. Igor Terekhov tells the BBC that intense fighting is taking place on all sides of the city and says the situation is "very dangerous". He says Russian troops are shelling and firing cruise missiles at residential areas "constantly", and adds that he's received reports Moscow's forces have detonated a so-called "vacuum bomb" in the city. "They [Russia] threw against Kharkiv all the imaginable forces and a colossal number of tanks are approaching Kharkiv," he says. He adds, the Russian attack "never stops" and says Ukrainian troops are engaged in running battles with what he calls "saboteur groups" and is calling on the outside world "to do everything possible to stop the aggressor". Terekhov says Kharkiv's citizens remain defiant, adding there have been no reports of casualties in the city's bomb shelters, where many have retreated. "The city of Kharkiv will hold and today Kharkiv is unified like never before. The mood in the city is serious and everybody is focused, but the city is united and will stand-fast," he says. map showing main strikes on Kharkiv in the last 24 hours BBCCopyright: BBC Sites of some of the main strikes on Kharkiv in the last 24 hoursImage caption: Sites of some of the main strikes on Kharkiv in the last 24 hours Article share tools ShareView more share options Share this post Copy this link www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-60582327?ns_mchannel...

Posted at 17:2117:21 BREAKING UN condemns invasion and demands withdrawal The UN General Assembly has voted in favour of a resolution condemning Russia's invasion and calling for it immediately to pull all of its forces out of Ukraine. The resolution was supported by 141 of the body's 193 members at a rare emergency General Assembly session called by the UN Security Council. Ahead of the vote, Ukraine's UN ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya said Russia had "come to deprive Ukraine of the very right to exist". Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said Russia wanted to stop a separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine and accused the West of using "open and cynical threats" to get countries to vote for the resolution.

Posted at 17:1417:14 BREAKING Ukrainian negotiators depart for Belarus, Russia claims Russian officials say they expect Ukrainian negotiators to arrive on the Polish-Belarusian border for the next round of peace talks on Thursday morning, where a ceasefire is set to be discussed. Moscow's chief negotiator, Vladimir Medinsky, told Russian media the Ukrainian delegation has left the capital city of Kyiv and that Russian troops are providing a security corridor for the delegates. Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said earlier on Wednesday that Moscow remains committed to the "demilitarisation" of Ukraine and added there should be a list of specified weapons that can never be deployed on Ukrainian territory. But he said that Vladimir Putin's regime recognised the Ukrainian people's right to chose their own leader and that Russia accepts Volodymyr Zelensky as the legitimate president.

Posted at 17:0217:02 BREAKING Nearly 500 Russian troops killed - Moscow Russia's defence ministry has given its first figures for casualties sustained during its invasion of Ukraine. It says 498 Russian soldiers have been killed and 1,597 wounded so far, according to Russian media reports. The claim is significantly less than Ukraine's assessment of Russian casualties - Kyiv claims it has killed 5,840 Russian troops. Russia has also claimed that more than 2,870 Ukrainian service members have been killed and about 3,700 wounded. Kyiv has not given any figures. The BBC cannot independently verify either the Russian or Ukrainian claims, but the UK Ministry of Defence believes that Moscow's forces have suffered heavy losses. Earlier Ukraine's emergency services said more than 2,000 civilians and 10 emergency services personnel had been killed so far.

As countries impose sanctions and seek to isolate Vladimir Putin, Khan became the first leader to sign a new trade deal with Russia since the attack. He said the pair had “great discussions” on his visit to Moscow last week, which took place as Putin launched the invasion. They signed a bilateral agreement and Khan also agreed to import two million tons of wheat from Russia. He defended the deal in a televised speech to the nation, saying Pakistan had needed it. “We have signed agreements with them to import natural gas because Pakistan’s own gas reserves are depleting,” he said. “Inshallah (God willing), the time will tell that we have had great discussions.” Imran Khan has agreed to work with Russia, despite the deadly invasion of Ukraine© Provided by The Independent Imran Khan has agreed to work with Russia, despite the deadly invasion of Ukraine Khan has expressed concern over the invasion of Ukraine, but fallen short of denouncing it. A post-meeting statement said Khan told Putin he “regretted the latest situation between Russia and Ukraine” and had hoped “diplomacy could avert a military conflict.” Now, the top diplomats of 22 countries have called on Pakistan to support a resolution condemning Russia’s aggression against Ukraine in the United Nations General Assembly. Last week, Russian state media broadcast images of Mr Khan and Mr Putin shaking hands and sitting down together in Moscow, hours after Putin gave a televised address effectively declaring war on Ukraine. Mr Khan arrived in Moscow late on Wednesday, going ahead with a planned trip on the eve of the invasion. The prime minister was heard in a video clip telling Russian officials on his arrival that it was a time of “so much excitement”. “What a time I have come... so much excitement,” Mr Khan can be heard saying in the clip shared on social media. The US reacted angrily to the news of Mr Khan’s visit even before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began, saying the onus was on every “responsible” country to voice objection to Mr Putin’s actions.

Last night, the authorities took independent radio station Ekho Moskvy off the air and blocked access to the website of leading independent internet TV channel Dozhd. In recent days, the authorities have sent threatening letters to a number of independent media demanding they take content about the war in Ukraine down or be blocked. According to the demands, media are not allowed to use words such as "war" and "invasion" and must not include "unverified" (i.e. not from official state sources) information about civilian casualties and killed and injured troops. Today, Ekho Moskvy has said the prosecutor’s office is trying to block the station’s social media accounts too. Both Ekho and Dozhd continue to be hosted on some services like YouTube.

Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images Russia's largest lender, Sberbank, has announced that it is leaving the European market as its subsidiaries there face large cash outflows. The bank said it was no longer able to supply liquidity to its European subsidiary banks but that its capital level and asset quality were sufficient to make payments to all depositors. On Tuesday, Sberbank's European arm was ordered to close by the European Central Bank, which had warned it faced failure due to a run on deposits after Russia invaded Ukraine.

Posted at 5:585:58 UN: At least 136 dead in Ukraine, including 13 children Russian forces have used explosive weapons with a wide impact area Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images Russian forces have used explosive weapons with a wide impact areaImage caption: Russian forces have used explosive weapons with a wide impact area The United Nations says at least 136 civilians have been killed since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began last Thursday. Thirteen children are believed to be among the dead. But Liz Throssell, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said the real death toll is likely to be much higher. Throssell said most of the casualties came as a result of heavy artillery shelling, airstrikes and other wide-impact explosives. The UN also said that about 400 people have been injured in the fighting so far. However, figures released by Ukraine's government suggest as many as 352 civilians are dead and 1,684 injured.

Posted at 5:385:38 What was Biden's message to Putin? Anthony Zurcher BBC North America reporter US President Joe Biden's annual State of the Union speech is billed as a message to Congress setting out his agenda. But in the shadow of war in Ukraine, the president spent the first 15 minutes on his biggest foreign policy challenge to date. And his comments on the invasion were tailored to four distinct audiences - Vladimir Putin, EU allies, Ukrainians and the American people. The most emotional moment came early in his speech, when Mr Biden thanked Ukrainian ambassador to the US Oksana Markarova, who was seated in the balcony next to Jill Biden and other distinguished guests. "Thank you, thank you, thank you," he said. But for Vladmir Putin, Mr Biden’s message was blunt - the Russian president had “badly miscalculated” and his nation’s economic pain was just beginning. And he added that the US would fight for “every inch” of Nato territory were the Russians to expand their attack.

Posted at 5:265:26 A warm welcome as refugees pour in Nick Thorpe BBC News, Hungary border Refugees in Hungary EPACopyright: EPA Hungary is now the second country after Poland in terms of the numbers of Ukrainian refugees, with over 100,000 arriving since the invasion. In the entrance hall of the primary school in Tiszbecs, a woman shouts out the names of Hungarian cities, with a strong Ukrainian accident. Hundreds of refugees, sheltering in the hall and neighbouring classrooms and the sports hall, listen intently. Lifts by bus, minibus and car are provided for free. Volunteers and translators move through the throng, taking down the names and needs of those waiting. Refugees receive aid Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images Each of the five border crossings from Ukraine has been allotted to a different charity. This one is run by the Baptist Church. It’s warm and well organised, despite the high numbers, a turnover of 3,000 people a day, almost all women and children. Donations arrive every few minutes from all over country. The authorities here fear this is just the beginning. Article share tools ShareView more share options Share this post Copy this link www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/world-europe-60582327?ns_mchannel...

It’s unclear what the exact situation is in Kherson, but local reports say that the Russian military is on the streets. The city’s mayor, Igor Kolykhayev, had told local radio that Russian forces had captured the city’s railway station and port on Tuesday night, according to BBC Russian. “The fighting is going on now, and the occupation of our city is under way.” He said many people had died including Ukrainian soldiers and civilians, and government officials were now trying to make sure people could leave or get to shelters. This video from our BBC Russian service shows the shelling and entry of Russian troops into the city. Kherson, which has a population of almost 300,000, is located between Mykolaiv and New Kakhovka. Russia’s strongest military advances so far have been in the south, where its forces from Crimea are targeting several Ukrainian cities including Odesa and Mykolaiv. Mykolaiv officials have in the past hour stated that the city is still in Ukrainian hands.
