Chuhuiv, a small city of 30,000 people, 22 miles southeast of Ukraine’s second city, Kharkiv, was one of the first cities occupied by the Russians.

A week ago, a boy was killed in the city after massive shelling hit an apartment complex.

The image of a woman with her face bandaged and bleeding profusely after the shelling of Chuhuiv has become one of the most iconic images of the conflict to date.

As the carnage continues Ukraine claims that Russia has lost 12,000 troops and more than 2,000 military vehicles – although US intelligence put the death toll at around 4,500.

Regardless of the actual numbers, Mr. Putin is said to have been deeply shocked by the aggression of the heroic Ukrainians.

In just one day on Saturday, he reported the loss of nine planes.

Russia has issue a list of three main needs to Ukraine to end the war.

A Kremlin spokesman called on Ukraine to cease military action, change its constitution to become a neutral country, recognize Crimea as Russian territory and recognize the breakaway republics of Luhansk and Donetsk.

Dmitry Peskov told Reuters that Russia had told Ukraine it was ready to halt military action “for a moment” if Kyiv met its conditions.

And he insists Russia is not seeking any further territorial claims in Ukraine.

“We are actually finishing the demilitarization of Ukraine,” he said. “We will get it done. But the main problem is that Ukraine stops taking military action.

“They should stop their military action and then nobody will shoot. They should amend their constitution so that Ukraine will refuse any purpose to join any bloc.

“We also talked about how they should recognize Crimea as Russian territory and how they need to recognize that Donetsk and Lugansk are independent countries. And that’s all. It will stop in a moment.”

Last month, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy denied Russia’s territorial claims in a speech to his people ahead of the February 24 invasion.

“Both Donbas and Crimea will return to Ukraine,” he said. “Especially through diplomacy. We don’t encroach on what’s not ours, but we won’t give up our land.”
