At least 35 killed after Russia strikes Ukraine military base near Poland

It’s day 18 of the war in Ukraine and there has been no let up in the fighting.

Russian forces have continued their operation all over the country.

There was more heavy shelling of Chernihiv and an American journalist was shot dead near Irpin.

The attack on the Yavoriv base near the Polish border is the furthest west the Russians have attacked since the invasion started.

Ukrainians have also been protesting against the Russian occupation in Kherson.

But there have been hopeful messages from both sides over negotiations, although it is too early to tell whether that will lead to anything.
