HEADLINES: The latest from Ukraine
Correspondent Charlie D’Agata reports.

COVER STORY: The war as Russians see it
With the clampdown on independent news and social media within Russia, Vladimir Putin is restricting what Russian citizens can see from Ukraine. Correspondent Lee Cowan reports on the propaganda and misinformation that is painting a false picture of the war being waged by the Kremlin.

Russian police officers detain a man during an unsanctioned protest rally against the military invasion of Ukraine, March 6, 2022 in Moscow. The Kremlin has instructed schools and media not to call it a “war,” instead mandating “special peacekeeping operation.” Using such terms as “invasion” or “attack” to describe Russia’s campaign will cause that country’s internet censor board to block websites.
