Global National: Feb. 25, 2024 | Zelenskyy says 31,000 soldiers killed since Russia invaded in 2022

In tonight’s top story, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says that more than 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in the past two years since Russia’s full-scale invasion. This is the first time Ukraine has openly given details of how many soldiers have died in over a year. Additionally, Ukraine’s defence minister stated that the country is “losing territory” in its grinding war with Russia due to the failure of about 50 per cent of the promised weapons failing to reach Kyiv on time. Redmond Shannon reports.

Canada has been supporting Ukraine’s war effort by training 39,000 Ukrainian troops and equipping soldiers in Poland. The Canadian delegation met with top government officials to discuss how Canada could provide further assistance to Ukraine. While the work done by Canadians has been acknowledged, Canada has been criticized for not delivering aid fast enough. Defence Minister Bill Blair has promised that the drones that were promised will be delivered as soon as April, but there is no timeline for the delivery of the missile air defence system bought a year ago. Abigail Bimman reports.

According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, negotiators are working on a potential hostage deal in Gaza, which could lead to another temporary ceasefire in the region for the first time in three months. The negotiations come amidst a growing backlash to the Netanyahu government’s handling of the conflict, as more than a million civilians remain trapped in southern Gaza with urgent need for aid. Mike Drolet has more on the situation and the ongoing efforts to find a resolution.

In Quebec, 18 individuals have been arrested in connection to a series of gang-related crimes near Quebec City. Ten of these individuals are now facing charges related to the violence. Mike Armstrong explains that an organization called “Blood Family Mafia” appears to have picked a fight with the Hells Angels.

Meanwhile, a recent study conducted by the Pew Research Center has revealed that more young men in the age group of 18-34 years want to have children than women. Experts in sociology and economics suggest that this trend may be partly due to the various challenges women face in their personal and professional lives after having a child. The study has prompted a closer look at the factors that influence people’s decisions to have children and how society can support them in making those choices without undue pressure. Sean Previl explains.

Finally, a historical church in Halifax held its annual Heritage Month worship service on Sunday. As Vanessa Wright reports, the service was filled with cultural performances and tributes to African Nova Scotian history.
