“We’ve hardly slept for seven nights,” President Zelensky says in a new address. “Or we sleep, but anxiously. My dears, the time will come when we’ll be able to sleep, but it will be after the war, after the victory, in a peaceful country, as we need.”

Just had a conversation with @POTUS. The American leadership on anti-Russian sanctions and defense assistance to Ukraine was discussed. We must stop the aggressor as soon as possible. Thank you for your support!

The US remains in regular contact with Pres Zelensky through a secure satellite phone that the US gave the Ukrainian govt last month before the invasion occurred, per a US official familiar with the matter. The phone allows Zelensky to remain in contact w/ US while he’s mobile.

Of course Putin’s ‘genocide’ claim is bullshit, but the paperwork must be done:
AMSTERDAM, March 1 (Reuters) – The World Court on Tuesday said it will hold hearings on March 7-8 on whether to order “provisional measures” in a lawsuit brought by Ukraine against Russia seeking a halt to Moscow’s military actions in Ukraine…
The court, formally known as the International Court of Justice, is the United Nations’ venue for resolving disputes between states.
Ukraine’s lawsuit filed on Sunday argues that Russia’s claim it invaded Ukraine to prevent a genocide is false.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Sunday that he had filed the lawsuit at the court over genocide accusations made by Moscow…
At the March 7-8 hearings, judges will not consider questions of jurisdiction or of the merits of Ukraine’s case, but only whether the matter is so urgent they must order some immediate measure in the interests of justice before the case can be heard in full.
No date for a decision has been set.
While the ICJ is the United Nations’ highest court and its rulings are binding, states including Russia have ignored them in the past.

To Americans looking to travel to Ukraine to fight Russian troops, @kjp46 says: “We applaud their bravery. However, our travel advisory remains. U.S. citizens should not travel to Ukraine.” State’s advisories meant to “help Americans make the most informed decisions” on travel.

One thing I have learned in this last, dark week is that I really appreciate the Ukrainian sense of humor. ☠️ https://t.co/WtMj98hWQD
