As violence spreads in Ukraine, the conditions continue to deteriorate. According to BBC reports, the death toll now numbers in the dozens as the capital city of Kiev (Kyiv) increasingly resembles a war zone.

Meanwhile, violence is escalating, and diplomats from Europe and other parts of the world are seeking a suspension to the hostilities.
