Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Zelenskiy Calls Russian Violence in Bucha ‘Concentrated Evil'” – below is their description.

Ukrainian president Zelenskiy call the situation in Bucha “concentrated evil,” as more reports emerge of violence allegedly committed by Russian forces.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said his forces are strengthening defenses in eastern Ukraine and Donbas, where Russia’s goal is to complete its takeover of the region. He said Ukraine has a shortage of modern anti-missile systems.

Russia said it struck an oil refinery supplying Ukrainian troops in central and eastern parts of the country. Transnistria, a pro-Russian enclave in neighboring Moldova, denied a Ukrainian claim that Moscow’s forces are redeploying in its territory in possible preparation for an attack from the west.

A Ukrainian negotiator said he views peace talks as advanced enough to set the stage for talks between Zelenskiy and Russian President Vladimir Putin, though there was no word from Moscow. The U.S. said it’s sending another $300 million in military and medical assistance to Ukraine, including Switchblade dive-bombing drones.

In This Story: Donbas

The Donbas or Donbass is a historical, cultural, and economic region in south-eastern Ukraine, and bordering Russia.

In March 2014, following the Euromaidan and 2014 Ukrainian revolution, the Donetsk and Luhansk “People’s Republics” took control of areas within the region with support from Russia. Russia recognised their independence in February 2022. No other country recognises the independence of the areas.

Before the war, the city of Donetsk (then the fifth largest city in Ukraine) had been considered the unofficial capital of the Donbas. Large cities (over 100,000 inhabitants) also included Luhansk, Mariupol, Makiivka, Horlivka, Kramatorsk, Sloviansk, Alchevsk, Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk. Now the city of Kramatorsk is the interim administrative centre of the Donetsk Oblast, whereas the interim centre of Luhansk Oblast is Sievierodonetsk.
