Meanwhile - horrors continue in Ukraine - Zelenskyy

Updated 3:00 p.m. ET, June 2, 2022

About 20% of Ukraine's territory is under Russian control, according to President Volodymyr Zelensky, with the Donbas region "almost entirely destroyed."

Roughly 800 people are hiding in bomb shelters underneath a chemical factory that was hit by Russian missiles in the eastern city of Severodonetsk, a Ukrainian official told CNN. While street fighting still continues in the city, Russian forces now occupy "most" of it.

Zelensky claimed more than 200,000 Ukrainian children have been forcibly taken to Russia since the start of the war. More than 1.6 million people from Ukraine and the breakaway Donbas area have crossed into Russia so far, Russian state media reported.

Russia said Ukraine's demands to the West for advanced rocket launchers is a "direct provocation" after the US and UK agreed to provide new missile systems to Kyiv. NATO said it didn't foresee Russia retaliating to the US move.
