Amid Russia’s armed conflict with Ukraine, the death toll keeps rising in the war-torn country that was invaded beginning late Wednesday.
According to Fox News:
Russia’s all-out attack on Ukraine has killed at least 57 people and wounded 169 during the first day of President Vladimir Putin’s full-scale invasion, Ukraine’s Health Minister Oleh Lyashko said Thursday.
Ukraine’s armed forces had earlier reported at least 40 soldiers were killed, and said a military plane carrying 14 people crashed south of Kyiv.
While fatalities rise in Ukraine, over 1,700 pro-freedom protesters have been arrested in Russia, according to OVD Info, which has been tracking the political imprisonments.
Crowds chanting “No War” were seen marching through central Moscow.
