Russians keep pressure on Mariupol; massive convoy breaks up


Associated Press

MARIUPOL, Ukraine (AP) — Satellite photos appear to show that a massive Russian convoy that had been mired outside the Ukrainian capital for days has split up. The imagery from Maxar Technologies indicates that the 40-mile (64-kilometer) line of vehicles, tanks and artillery fanned out into towns and forests, with artillery pieces moved into firing positions. Armored units were seen in towns near the Antonov Airport north of the city. Some of the vehicles moved into forests. The convoy had massed outside the city early last week, but its advance appeared to stall amid reports of food and fuel shortages. U.S. officials said Ukrainian troops also targeted the convoy with anti-tank missiles.
