What is happening in Ukraine?

As of the time of writing, Russia has launched a series of attacks on Ukraine.

However, Zelenskyy warned his people that Friday night would be "the hardest" for his country so far, as he said: "The fate of Ukraine is being decided right now."

He added that the Russian enemy would go all-in in a desperate bid to seize the capital.

Zelenskyy stated on Friday: "This night will be the hardest. The enemy will go all in. We must withstand. The night will be very hard, but sunset will come."

He went on: "This night will be harder than the day. Many cities of our state are under attack: Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, our boys and girls in the Donbas, the cities of the south, special attention to Kyiv."

In a stark statement, he said: "We can't lose the capital."

Who is has Nato responded?

In February 2022, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), has responded to the Russian invasion of Ukraine by activating the NATO Response Force (NRF) for the first time since its inception.

NATO Supreme Allied Commander General, Tod Wolters, released a statement to the press regarding the NRF's future plans to deploy.

General Wolters stated: "This is a historic moment and the very first time the Alliance has employed these high readiness forces in a deterrence and defense role."

He added: "They represent a flexible, combat credible force that can be employed in multiple ways and we are utilizing fully their inherent agility."

"These deterrence measures are prudent and enhance our speed, responsiveness, and capability to shield and protect the one billion citizens we swore to protect."

The Commander General also said: "We were joined today by our close partners Sweden, Finland, and the European Union."

"President Putin has failed in his goal of dividing the West. NATO is as united and resolute as it’s ever been, and NATO will maintain its Open Door to those European states who share our values and who one day may seek to join our Alliance."
