Fighting rages outside Kyiv; death toll in Mariupol reaches 1,500

Fighting raged on the outskirts of Kyiv Saturday as air raid sirens sounded in the capital and Russian troops attempt to circle the city.

Artillery pounded Kyiv’s northwestern outskirts. To the city’s southwest, two columns of smoke – one black and one white — rose in the town of Vaslkyiv after a strike on an ammunition depot. The strike on the depot caused hundreds of small explosions from detonating ammunition.

In the besieged city of Mariupol at least 1,500 people have died as of Friday, the government said. The city still has no food or water and people have been forced to stop burying their dead because of the sheer numbers and danger. Russian troops shelled a maternity hospital last week and on Saturday the government said a mosque where people were hiding was attacked. At least three people, including a child died in the hospital attack.

Concerns about rape, human trafficking grow as millions of women and children refugees flee

Concerns have grown over how to protect Ukrainian refugees from human trafficking and rape as more than 2.5 million mostly women and children have fled the war.

A man was detained in Poland on suspicion of raping a 19-year-old refugee he’d lured with offers of shelter and in another case a man seemed to change his story when he was questioned by authorities about only offering help to women and children.

“You have to worry about any potential risks for trafficking — but also exploitation, and sexual exploitation and abuse. These are the kinds of situations that people like traffickers … look to take advantage of,” Joung-ah Ghedini-Williams, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees head of global communications, said.

Police said the suspect met the 19-year-old girl “by offering his help via an internet portal. She escaped from war-torn Ukraine, did not speak Polish. She trusted a man who promised to help and shelter her. Unfortunately, all this turned out to be deceitful manipulation.”

Police in Berlin have also warned women of accepting offers to stay overnight.

Human Trafficking Foundation director of operations Tamara Barnett said, “When you’ve suddenly got a huge cohort of really vulnerable people who need money and assistance immediately it’s sort of a breeding ground for exploitative situations and sexual exploitation. When I saw all these volunteers offering their houses … that flagged a worry in my head.”

Officials in Romania and Poland said undercover officers are watching out for potential criminality and men offering rides to women in a Romanian border town have been turned away.

“We are trying to make a control for every vehicle leaving the area,” Ionut Epureanu, the chief police commissioner of Romania’s Suceava county said. “A hundred people making transport have good intentions, but it’s enough to be one that isn’t … and tragedy can come.”

Ukrainian woman who survived hospital bombing gives birth to baby girl

Newborn Veronika curled against her mother’s side on Friday, as if to hide from the horror around them — the war that tore apart the Mariupol maternity hospital where she was meant to greet the world.

On the eve of giving birth, her mother, Mariana Vishegirskaya, had to flee the hospital when a Russian airstrike hit.

Her brow and cheek bloodied, she clutched her belongings in a plastic bag as she navigated down the hospital’s debris-strewn stairs in her polka dot pajamas on Wednesday.

Images of the desperate mothers and medical workers from the Children’s and Women’s Health hospital shocked the world, as the bombing took Russia’s war against Ukraine to a sickening new level.
