Day 121. Today, we discuss the latest news from the front as Ukrainian troops pull back from Severodonetsk, after weeks of pounding by Russian artillery. Plus, we hear from our Brussels correspondent Joe Barnes who’s returned back from the Kaliningrad-Lithuania border. He talks about his reporting there and gives an insight into the EU’s thinking on Ukraine’s candidacy status.

And finally, we speak to Anna Virstan. Anna’s from Kyiv where she lives with her husband and her dog. She spent the opening days of the war watching missiles fly over her apartment while battling COVID-19 – she tells us her story.
