Kyiv: Solidarity, perseverance and ‘full mobilisation’ against Russian invasion

As the UN reports more than a million refugees have now fled the violence in Ukraine, the UN General Assembly voted 141 to 5 to denounce the Russian invasion.

Meanwhile, Russian troops have reportedly seized their first city: the strategically located southern port of Kherson.

Heavy shelling continues to be reported in the cities of Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Mariupol, and a 40-mile-long Russian convoy approaching Kyiv has been stalled due in part to Ukrainian resistance.

Democracy Now! goes to Kyiv to speak with Tymofiy Mylovanov, president of the Kyiv School of Economics and former Ukrainian trade minister, who details the global financial costs of the war and describes how the Ukrainian government is mobilising to fight the resistance.

Also on the line is Kyiv-based human rights lawyer Oleksandra Matviichuk, who calls on the international community to impose more sanctions on Russia.
