Russia targeted Mariupol early in its invasion and has besieged it for weeks. A Washington-based think tank reported that Kremlin troops probably captured the city’s port area Saturday, reducing the resistance there to a steel plant and isolated pockets around Mariupol. The think tank, the Institute for the Study of War, projected Russian forces could capture the city in the coming weeks, but it said the final assaults probably would “cost them dearly.”
In Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, five people were killed and at least 13 wounded in the latest attack in eastern Ukraine, where Russia is expected to intensify its offensive in the days ahead.
In Kyiv, the mayor is urging residents against returning despite the withdrawal of the invading forces, and a Russian missile attack struck a town in the capital region early Sunday, officials said.
