UKRAINE,RUSSIA: Ukraine is running out of Oxygen supplies that critically ill people need, the World Health Organisation said today, calling for safe passage for emergency imports as combat rages.

“The Oxygen supply situation is nearing a very dangerous point in Ukraine. Trucks are unable to transport Oxygen supplies from plants to hospitals across the country, including the capital Kyiv,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and WHO Regional Director for Europe Hans Kluge said in a statement.

“The majority of hospitals could exhaust their Oxygen reserves within the next 24 hours. Some have already run out. This puts thousands of lives at risk.”

People fleeing war in Ukraine poured into central Europe on Sunday, with queues at border crossings stretching back for kilometres on the fourth day of a Russian invasion that has pushed over 400,000 people to seek safety abroad.

With men of conscription age prevented from leaving Ukraine, it is mostly women and children arriving at the border in eastern Poland, Slovakia and Hungary and in northern and northeastern Romania.

From Moscow to Siberia, Russian anti-war activists took to the streets again Sunday to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, despite the arrests of hundreds of protesters each day by police.

Demonstrators held pickets and marched in city centers, chanting “No to war!” as President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian nuclear deterrent to be put on high alert, upping the ante in the Kremlin’s standoff with the West and stoking fears of a nuclear war.

According to the OVD-Info rights group that tracks political arrests, police detained at least 2,063 Russians in 48 cities over anti-war demonstrations on Sunday, bringing the total of those detained over the past four days to more than 5,000.
