Russian forces capture two cities in Ukraine

According to Interfax, Russian forces seized two small cities in southeastern Ukraine, as well as the area surrounding a nuclear power plant, but met stiff resistance elsewhere as Moscow’s diplomatic and economic isolation deepened.

The news: According to the Ukrainian presidency, a Ukrainian delegation arrived at the border with Russian ally Belarus for ceasefire talks with Russian representatives after four days of fighting and a slower-than-expected Russian advance. It was unclear whether or not any progress could be made.

  • Blasts were heard before dawn on Monday in Kyiv, as well as in Kharkiv. They added that Russian ground forces’ attempts to seize major urban centers had been thwarted.
  • The Russian defense ministry has declared that its forces have taken over the towns of Berdyansk and Enerhodar in Ukraine’s southeastern Zaporizhzhya region.
  • They have even captured the area around the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant. 
  • A few news agencies have reported that Ukraine denied these allegations. 

According to Pavlo Kyrylenko, the head of the Donetsk regional administration, fighting raged around the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol all night. He did not inform about the Russian forces gaining or losing ground, nor did he provide casualty figures.

What’s important: At least 102 civilians have been killed in Ukraine since Thursday, with a further 304 injured, but the true figure is expected to be “considerably higher,” according to U.N. human rights chief Michelle Bachelet on Monday.

  • According to a senior US defense official, Russia has launched more than 350 missiles at Ukrainian targets since Thursday, with some of them hitting civilian infrastructure.
