Russia-Ukraine war LIVE updates News: Civilian militia men hold shotguns during training at a shooting range in outskirts Kyiv, Ukraine, Tuesday, June 7, 2022. (AP) Russia Ukraine War News Today, 8 June 2022: More than 1,000 Ukrainian soldiers who surrendered in the southeastern city of Mariupol have been transferred to Russia for investigation, the Tass news agency reported citing a Russian law enforcement source. The source said that more Ukrainian prisoners would be sent to Russia. Kyiv is seeking the handover of all the estimated 2,000 soldiers from the Azovstal plant in a prisoner swap. Russian lawmakers have demanded that some soldiers be put on trial. Ukraine has expressed concern in the past that prisoners taken to Russia may face torture or even execution. Meanwhile, the World Bank’s executive board has approved $1.49 billion of additional financing for Ukraine. This expands the organization’s total pledged support to over $4 billion. The funds are to help Kyiv pay wages for government and social workers. Ukraine has said it needs at least $5 billion per month in the near term to keep its government operating. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his nightly video address that Russian troops have not achieved a breakthrough against Ukrainian forces in Donbas. “The situation on the front has not undergone any significant changes in the past 24 hours,” Zelensky said. He added that “the extremely heroic defense of Donbas continues.” Ukraine’s president said that the fiercest fighting was continuing around Sievierodonetsk, Lysychansk and Popasna. Zelenskyy claimed that 31,000 Russian soldiers have lost their lives in Ukraine since the invasion began. ( Here’s why Sievierodonetsk matters to Russia ).

(Reuters) Russia struck Kyiv with missiles for the first time in more than a month, while President Vladimir Putin warned he would strike new targets in the country if western nations supplied Ukraine with longer-range missiles. In Sievierodonetsk, the main battlefield in the east where Russia has concentrated its forces recently, Ukraine officials said a counter-attack had retaken half of the city.
In the Kyiv attack, one person was hospitalised though there were no immediate reports of deaths. Dark smoke could be seen from many miles away after Russia's attack on two outlying districts on Sunday. Ukraine said the strike hit a rail car repair works, while Moscow said it had destroyed tanks sent by Eastern European countries to Ukraine.
Meanwhile, a Ukrainian lawmaker, Yevhen Yakovenko, was detained at the Moldovan border at the request of the International Criminal Police Organization, or Interpol, Moldova's border police. Yakovenko was placed in a pretrial detention centre, a press service representative of the border police said. Viorel Tentiu, the head of Interpol in Moldova, said in a statement that Yakovenko was put on the list following accusations from Belarus of bribery and corruption.
