A humanitarian convoy is attempting to reach the besieged city of Mariupol, while Ukrainian troops launch counter-offensives in the north.

  • Russia and Ukraine agreed to a temporary ceasefire for the besieged southern port city of Mariupol to allow a humanitarian convoy to deliver aid. Similar ceasefires in the past have been broken.
  • Some 100,000 thousand people are thought to be trapped in Mariupol having gone weeks without access to food and medicines. People who have escaped the city describe harrowing scenes.
  • Ukrainian troops launched more counteroffensives against Russian forces on the outskirts of Kyiv and in the north of the country as Russian troops pulled back from the region.
  • US and Ukrainian officials say the Russian military plans to move troops to the east of the country for a planned assault on Donbas. The aerial bombardment of Kyiv and northern Ukraine continued.
  • A Russian official said two Ukrainian helicopters struck an oil depot in the Russian city of Belgorod. If true, the incident would mark the first Ukrainian attack on Russian territory during the war.
  • President Biden announced the US would release up to 180 million barrels of oil a day from its strategic reserve. Oil prices have soared due to a de facto ban on Russian oil that has roiled markets.
