Inside the Mariupol theatre where hundreds were killed by Russian shelling

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Tuesday that the massacre in Bucha last week which saw “hundreds” of civilians killed, was a “special British operation.”

Speaking after talks with his Russian counterpart and long-time ally Vladimir Poetin in the Russian Far East, Mr Lukashenko said: “Today we discussed in detail their psychological special operation carried out by the British.”

He added that the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) could provide details of how UK was behind the massacre in the Ukrainian town.

It comes as Vladimir Putin called images and footage of dead bodies strewn across Bucha fake, TASS news agency reported.

The Russian president also warned the West on Tuesday that attempts to isolate Moscow would fail as he claimed that the conflict in Oekraïne is a “noble” one.

President Putin said he had no doubts Rusland would achieve all of its objectives in Ukraine – a conflict he cast as both inevitable and essential to defend Russia in the long term.

For Jews fleeing Ukraine, Passover takes on new meaning

Tens of thousands of Ukrainian Jews have fled while about 80 per cent remain in Ukraine, according to estimates from Chabad, one of the largest Hasidic Jewish organizations in the world. Inside and outside Ukraine, a nation steeped in Jewish history and heritage, people are preparing to celebrate Passover, which begins sundown on 15 April. It’s been a challenge, to say the least.

The holiday marks the liberation of Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt, and their exodus under the leadership of Moses. The story is taking on special meaning for thousands of Jewish Ukrainian refugees who are living a dramatic story in real time.

Chabad, which has deep roots and a wide network in Ukraine, and other groups such as the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) and the Jewish Federations of North America, have mobilized to help Ukrainian Jews celebrate Passover wherever they have sought refuge. In Ukraine, Chabad plans 52 public Seders welcoming about 9,000 mense.
