Inside Politics
May 13, 2022

Ukraine forces a Russian retreat on one front. Russian forces slowly but steadily eat into Ukrainian territory in another. In Kharkiv Russia back pedals. In Rubizhne, Ukrainian troops are pulling back. Meanwhile, the war is causing a global ripple effect on food supply. The Russian blockade is stopping grain from getting out and putting nations at risk of starving.
