(ANSA) - TRIESTE, 17 GIU - A third American, Marine veteran Grady Kurpasi, has disappeared in Ukraine.

This was stated by U.S. administration officials cited by CNN.

He was last heard from between April 23 and 24. Kurpasi served 20 years in the Marines and had decided to go volunteer in Ukraine.

Draghi, Scholz and Macron's mission to Kiev yesterday for a meeting with Zelensky. The Ukrainian president presses for EU membership. Draghi responds to him that "it is Ukraine that has to choose the peace it wants," and adds that now "Europe must have the same courage that Zelensky had" even though, he admits, for now there is no room for peace. Macron and Scholz echo him, "France and Germany will never negotiate with Russia behind Ukraine's back," which "is part of Europe." For Foreign Minister Serghei Lavrov, Kiev's entry would violate the same criteria the EU has set for itself. In any case, he added, relations with Europe are no longer "among Moscow's priorities." The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (Ohchr) reported that 4,481 civilians have been killed since the start of the Russian invasion. The number of wounded, on the other hand, is 5,565. Ukrinform writes this. According to the latest update, the victims include 1,739 men, 1,159 women, 119 girls and 125 boys, as well as 40 children and 1,299 adults whose gender is still unknown. Most of the civilians killed were victims of shelling, missiles and air strikes.

At least 10 private homes were damaged and a school and an apartment building were destroyed in the Kharkiv region. This was stated by the governor, Oleh Synyehubov on Telegram describing the attacks as "war crimes of the Russian occupiers." "Fighting continues on the line of contact. In the direction of Kharkiv, the enemy tried to conduct a patrol fighting in the Kochubeyevka area, but suffered losses and retreated. In the Izium area, the occupiers are trying to continue the offensive in the direction of Slavyansk. Our defenders repel all the enemy's attacks," the governor wrote on Telegram. The statements cannot be independently verified. (ANSA).
