At a hastily convened press conference in Washington DC, Oksana Markarova, Kyiv’s ambassador to the US, called for massive sanctions and military assistance.

When I asked her if she expected – or hoped – that US troops would be sent to Ukraine, she said: “We do not expect anyone to fight for us.”

On Thursday, she and the others who work at the embassy looked exhausted and pale, as if they had not slept for some time.

Still, she was determined to put on a brave face for the 30 or so reporters in the room.

President Zelensky is still in Ukraine, Markarova told us, but she left it unclear whether he was still in Kyiv, or in a safer location.

She asked people to pray for Ukraine, adding: “But we also demand justice.”
