Ukraine’s authorities are reporting 57 military and civilian deaths, and 50 on the Russian side – although those numbers are sure to climb.

Much of the fighting so far has been concentrated in eastern areas, especially around the second city Kharkiv, as well as the Black sea ports of Odessa and Mariupol.

Russia claims it has destroyed more than 80 military targets.
