6:05 pm
along the fact that at least 300 people were killed in that really sent shock waves shock waves across ukraine. but even prior to that, when this attack happen, because people are asking themselves just whole fall, russia and the russia military is capable of going and wants to go in this war in ukraine. and funny, in another disturbing development, ukraine is accusing russia of abducting thousands of civilians evacuated from cities like murder you, paul, can you tell us more about these accusations that are being leveled by ukrainian leadership? just have you so much so many information that you've heard during this war, the claims and calling to claim. so yes, ukraine claims that about 400000 people have been forcibly removed from the different parts of ukraine. russia again, claims that rough before and a 1000 people voluntarily wanted to come to russia, mostly from the don't bus region. now at the i un un or
