The war in Ukraine may be entering a new phase as Russian troops refocus their efforts in the country's south and east.

Civilians are bracing for the possibility of more attacks like last week's airstrike on a crowded train station in Kramatorsk that killed dozens of people as they tried to flee.

One cause for concern is Russia's appointment of a new general to oversee the invasion. Aleksandr Dvornikov previously commanded Russian forces in Syria, where they also targeted civilians.

Here & Now's Jane Clayson speaks with The Washington Post's Dalton Bennett.
