Russia has reportedly turned to China for military help and economic relief - as sanctions bear down and its invasion of Ukraine continues.

Meanwhile a Russian missile attack on a Ukrainian military base very close to the border with Poland has European countries eying the situation even more nervously.

Missiles hit the base about 25-kilometres from the border with Poland, killing 35 people and wounding more than a hundred.

And the humanitarian situation in the city of Mariupol has become even more desperate.
