NATO, G7 and EU summits all are going to discuss Russia’s invasion on Ukraine today. The invasion which took place on February 24 has led over 3.6 million people to escape Ukrainian territory and left Russia’s economy isolated.
Meanwhile, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg told that allies will sign off for sending four “battle groups” to eastern members Hungary, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Romania. He also assured cyber security assistance and also of equipment “to help Ukraine protest against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats”.
Russian troops have resorted to surround and bomb Ukraine capital Kyiv which is resulting in heavy destruction and civillian deaths. About 264 civilians have been killed in Kyiv by Russia’s attacks, said Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko.
