    (CNN)The southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv came under intense shelling in the early morning hours on Sunday, according to officials there, as Russian President Vladimir Putin used his nation's Navy Day to issue more militaristic threats to anyone undermining Russia's "sovereignty and freedom."Mykolaiv Mayor Oleksandr Senkevych said cluster munitions were blowing out windows and destroying balconies. "Mykolaiv was under mass shelling today. Probably the strongest one of all time," he said in a statement. A CNN team on the ground heard the explosions caused by the strikes and saw fires that broke out in the shelling. Residents interviewed by CNN also said it was the heaviest shelling in the city since the start of the war. At least one person was killed and two injured in the attack, according to Vitalii Kim, head of Mykolaiv regional military administration.

    Russia has been hitting ground targets in Ukraine with a surface-to-air missiles, reports have said, the latest sign of growing logistical issues faced by Moscow. The Soviet-era S-300 missile system, first deployed in 1979, was originally designed to defend against air raids and cruise missiles for the Soviet Air Defence Forces. But reports from Ukraine have said the system has been used by Russian forces to attack ground targets, with the British Defence Ministry saying this suggests Vladimir Putin's forces are experiencing 'critical shortages' of ground-attack weapons. Reports said the missiles were equipped with an atypical explosive projectile that destroys everything in the vicinity of impact, with commentators accusing Russian forces of yet more war crimes for striking civilian areas with weapons capable of such indiscriminate destruction. On Thursday, Vitaly Kim - governor of the southern Mykolaiv region - said it had been targeted with seven S-300 missiles, with one person wounded and impacts on infrastructure, energy facilities and storage areas.

    The U.S. military’s presence in Europe is about to get a whole lot bigger as fears grow over an unhinged Vladimir Putin. President Joe Biden announced the news at a NATO summit in Madrid on Wednesday, pointing the finger directly at the Russian leader who has repeatedly claimed NATO expansion is to blame for his bloody onslaught against Ukraine. “In a moment where Putin has shattered peace in Europe and attacked the very, very tenets of the rule-based order of the United States and our allies—we’re stepping up,” Biden said. The U.S. military will now have permanent headquarters for the U.S. 5th Army Corps in Poland; will deploy an additional rotational combat brigade to Romania; “enhance” rotational deployments to the Baltics (where there will be a “persistent, heel-to-toe presence in the region”); deploy two more Navy destroyers to Spain; and two additional F-35 squadrons to the United Kingdom, according to the White House. The news is not expected to go over well in Moscow, where the Kremlin has repeatedly claimed U.S and NATO moves in Eastern Europe are an...
    Ukraine is nervously awaiting a historic decision from the EU on its bid to become a member state, with Volodymyr Zelesnky fearing it could lead to an increase in Russian 'hostile activity' this week. The president said there had been 'few such fateful decisions for Ukraine' as the one it expects from the EU this week. 'Only a positive decision is in the interests of the whole of Europe,' he said in his evening address Sunday.

    Ukrainian soldier waves Ukrainian national flag while standing on top of an APC. Hostomel. April 8, 2022. In the first few days after Russia’s invasion, the bridge on the north side of Kherson became famous as a sign of Ukrainian resistance. Recognizing the importance of that bridge to one of Russia’s strategic objectives—capturing Mykolaiv and Odesa—Russian forces had moved quickly to take the bridge in the first two days of fighting. But then Ukrainian forces took it back. Then Russia seemed to have control. Then Ukraine took it again.  It started to look as if Kherson might use the natural defense of the wide Dnieper River to hold out indefinitely, and if things got tough, they could always blow up the critical bridge, greatly complicating Russia’s advance and forcing them to move north to fight again for the bridge at Nova Kakhovka. Then, suddenly, Ukrainian forces were gone. Russia rolled into Kherson, bridge intact, while the troops that had fought over, and twice retaken, that bridge moved completely out of the city and hurried up the M14 highway to Mykolaiv. Russia had...
    A Russian missile strike at a pediatric hospital in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv is the latest fresh hell to come out of the beleaguered country, with harrowing images showing children’s toys near the scene of the attack. In the parking lot, CCTV footage caught the moment the Russian missile struck an ambulance donated by the U.K. to the facility. Witness accounts by those who were there say at least one child and one man died and at least 60 others were injured. International condemnation—by now a daily chorus—has done little to deter the carnage. Vitaly Kim Telegram Channel Doctors Without Borders staff, who were there helping administer medical aid at the compound, which also includes a cancer center, say the windows of their vehicles were blown out in the bombings. “Several explosions took place in close proximity to our staff over the course of about 10 minutes,” Doctors Without Borders Ukraine chief Michel-Olivier Lacharité told Reuters. “As they were leaving the area, the MSF team saw injured people and at least one dead body.” Ukrainian officials...
    Blinds and ripped curtains hang from blown-out windows, fluttering in the spring breeze like bunting.  A crane swings slowly back and forth, removing debris loaded by firemen searching for bodies. In the vast, normally bustling square below there is silence, save for the hum of the crane’s motor. It has been five days since a Russian cruise missile tore a gaping hole in the nine-storey regional government headquarters in Mykolaiv, the city at the front line of the battle for southern Ukraine, and the gap between life and death has all but closed. ‘It is highly unlikely that there will be any more survivors,’ says Lieutenant Dmytriy Pletenchu, guarding the scene. He confirms the death toll has risen to 36. ‘But there are still bodies in there,’ he says. Olga Maliarchux, 36, and Tanya Vyaznikova, 25, explain that they are special advisers to Mykolaiv’s governor Vitaliy Kim, the early morning rocket’s intended target who escaped the attack because he overslept  And so the firemen, bent over, framed by jagged masonry, continue to work. Not with the same frantic urgency as...
    By The Associated Press KYIV, Ukraine — The Ukrainian emergency services say the death toll after a Russian missile strike Tuesday on the regional government headquarters in the southern city of Mykolaiv has risen to 20.

The regional governor accused Russia of waiting until people arrived for work before striking the building. Emergency services said they are still working at the scene. ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Buses head to Mariupol in new evacuation attempt — US intel determines Putin has been misled by advisers on Ukraine — Poland to end Russian oil imports; Germany warns on gas — UN agency says 4 million refugees have now fled Ukraine — UN food chief says Ukraine war’s food crisis is worst since WWII — Go to https://apnews.com/hub/russia-ukraine for more coverage ___ OTHER DEVELOPMENTS: HELSINKI — Greenpeace says its activists from the Nordic countries and Russia have blocked a the transfer...
    Posad-Pokrovske, Ukraine (CNN)This is the final bus out of the last position Ukraine holds on the road to Kherson -- the first and only city Russia has taken.Villagers have standing room only, while the elderly have been rushed into a van. "Grandpa, we are here," shouts the daughter of one local, Viktor, from the bus doorway, as he sits a little bewildered in the van. The panic is real; at any moment the shelling could resume, a bombardment that residents say has littered the southern Ukrainian village of Posad-Pokrovske with cluster munitions.As the convoy of two vehicles hits the pockmarked road out toward the city of Mykolaiv, shells once again tar the horizon with a plume of black smoke. Sat in the back of the van, Vitali breaks down, using his grimy, orange workman's gloves to wipe tears from his eyes."Civilians! They killed all the people, these are bastards, these are reptiles, parasites," he says. "They don't fight troops, they fight people. Do you understand? Kill everyone. Worse than the fascists."Next to him sits Viktor, who remembers the last time a war of this ferocity came to this part of Europe. "Of course I remember," he says quietly. "I saw how the Germans attacked us. They...
    Smoldering Russian vehicle after a Ukrainian ambush. This isn’t the sort of thing you expect to see from an invading army:  What’s this about? Instead of trying to take new territory, Russian invaders are now sweating Ukrainian counterattacks in the region. Look at what’s being reinforced (map from here):  You can see the little airport icon for Antonov International Airport in Hostomel, and I added the two other towns listed in that tweet, to the left of the map (and circled). In other words, they’re reinforcing the current front lines, under pressure from the current Ukrainian counteroffensive. You can rest assured similar defensive emplacements are going up on all those front-line towns in the area. Would be fun if Ukraine was able to cut off Russian defenders in Hostomel and Bucha. It’s critical that Russia is kept outside artillery range of central Kyiv.  Speaking of artillery range, being out of it makes all the difference to a city. We’ve been following Ukrainian counter-attacks in Southern Ukraine, and in particular the effort toward Kherson from Mykolaiv. Now free of the scourge...
    Mykolaiv, Ukraine (CNN)The road between Kherson and Mykolaiv is sparse and ghostly. Civilians flee at high speed in one direction, as vans of grimacing troops head the other way. The fate of the key port of Mykolaiv will likely be decided along this stretch of concrete in southern Ukraine. Russian forces are moving from the occupied city of Kherson to pound villages along its once peaceful plains and Ukraine claims a counter-attack is pushing them back.One minibus fleeing the village of Luch carries five adults, who describe how only 10 of the 18 homes there remained standing. "No electricity, gas, water or heat," one woman says, adding that a school had been demolished. In the rear seat, another Luch resident adds: "The only ones left are those who can't leave."In the back sits 75-year-old Halyna, who was originally born in Tambov, Russia. She smiles wistfully as she remembers her late Ukrainian husband whom she left Russia to live with. She trembles and weeps onto the seat in front of her. "It was never before like this. It's cold inside me,...
    A tearful Ukrainian mother has spoken of her 'grief and shame' as she condemned her Russian fighter pilot son who was shot down for 'bombing' her country. Elena Golovenskaya broke down as she revealed her horror that her son, Major Aleksey Golovensky, had allegedly been attacking her native Ukraine. In the video message, released by the Ukrainian military, she said she felt 'grief and shame' and apologised to her fellow countrymen for her son's actions. Aleksey was reportedly shot down in the Mykolaiv area in south Ukraine on March 5 while flying in his SU-30SM fighter.  He reportedly told his captors that he had flown from Crimea, where he was performing 'reconnaissance' missions for Moscow's air force.
