Mariupol: Russian forces appear poised to capture this strategic southern port city, surrounding Ukrainian defenders standing in the Azovstal Steelworks, one of Europe’s largest steelworks. After a week-long siege, Donetsk Regional Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko told CNN on Friday that Mariupol “is no more.” In his Saturday evening address, President Volodymyr Zelensky said conditions in Mariupol remained “as harsh as possible” and were “simply inhumane”.

Kharkiv region: Indiscriminate shelling in the eastern region has intensified as Russian forces enter the area. Regional Governor Oleh Synyehubov warned residents to be cautious amid increasing attacks on residential areas and businesses, including a World Central Kitchen partner restaurant. One person was killed and 18 injured when a rocket hit the city on Saturday, Synyehubov said. In the town of Izyum, Russian troops continue to muster troops, according to the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War.

Luhansk region: Shelling by Russian forces in Lysychansk makes it difficult to evacuate civilians, regional governor Serhiy Haidai said on Saturday. The city of Severodonetsk is “70% destroyed”, he wrote, while other cities have been destroyed “beyond recognition”.

Lviv region: Ukrainian anti-aircraft systems shot down Russian cruise missiles on Saturday morning in the western region, Governor Maksym Kozytskyy wrote on Telegram.

Kherson: Although this port city on the Dnieper River was seized by Russian forces in the first week of the war, Moscow appears to have lost control of it after Ukrainian resistance and civilian protests, the US Department of Defense has said. . New satellite images show hundreds of graves dug there.
