Global National: March 11, 2022 | Russia escalates bombardment, widens assault on western Ukraine
Russia’s assault on Ukraine expands, with more cities in western Ukraine getting hit. Mike Armstrong explains how Ukrainians are reacting and how hundreds of volunteers are working around the clock to send out food and supplies.
There are also signs Russia plans to ramp up its assault on Ukraine’s capital, as Kyiv remains out of Russian hands after weeks of attacks. As Jackson Proskow reports, the Kremlin is being accused of more false claims and dirtier tactics to justify its assault on Ukraine.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has unveiled more sanctions against Russia’s richest oligarchs as the war in Ukraine rages on. Abigail Bimman explains how the measures are hitting Russia’s military, as well as billionaire and Chelsea F.C. owner Roman Abramovich, who has deep ties to Canada’s mining industry.
Abramovich is also the largest shareholder in the steel company Evraz, which operates in Saskatchewan. As Jayme Doll reports, there are concerns Canadian employees could be affected if Abramovich decides to retaliate.
