New military aid package for Ukraine worth 400 Million Dollars
Authorities in Ukraine have said the death toll from missile strikes in Zaporizhzhia has risen to 13. Rescue workers continue to pull bodies from the rubble of an apartment block. A Russian missile hit the five-story building in the southeastern city before dawn on Thursday.
New aerial images have been released showing the extent of the damage done by the Russian bombardment of the eastern Ukrainian city of Bakhmut.
Drone footage shows street after street of destroyed homes, with fires still burning. Pressure is mounting on Ukrainian troops holding out in the eastern city. Intelligence analysts say Kyiv may be considering a controlled pull-out. Russian forces have spent months trying to capture Bakhmut, seen as a key staging ground for further advances.
The US announced a new military aid package for Ukraine worth 400 million dollars. Part of that package apparently includes tactical bridges.
And German arms maker ‘Rheinmetall’ is negotiating the construction of a tank factory in Ukraine.
