Ukraine War and Russia news and the war entered its 21st day


Russia's relentless assault increasingly threatened Ukraine's capital as deadly strikes hit a residential area of Kyiv, underscoring a dire humanitarian crisis that has shocked the world and forced nearly 3 million people to flee the country.

Kyiv, under increasing fire, imposed a new 35-hour curfew starting later Tuesday as its mayor warned the city faced a "difficult and dangerous moment."

But even as the fighting raged and the war entered its 22nd day, the leaders of three European countries traveled to Ukraine's capital to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a bold show of support. The White House said Tuesday that President Joe Biden would travel to Brussels later this month to attend a NATO summit on the conflict.

Ukraine said Tuesday it saw possible room for compromise in talks with Russia, as Russian forces stepped up their bombardment of Kyiv.

A top Ukrainian negotiator, presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak, described the latest round of talks with the Russians, held via videoconference, as “very difficult and vicious” and said there were “fundamental contradictions” between the two sides, but added that “there is certainly room for compromise.” He said the talks will continue Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, another aide to Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelenskyy, Ihor Zhovkva, struck a more optimistic note, saying that the negotiations had become “more constructive” and that Russia had softened its stand by no longer airing its demands that Ukraine surrender.

As the talks between Ukraine and Russia continue, the Ukrainian presidential adviser and negotiator Mykhailo Podolyak in a tweet said the talks started on Monday, and communication between the two sides was hard but ongoing. As per the office of the Ukrainian general prosecutor, as many as 90 children have been killed and more than 100 wounded since Russia's invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

On day 21 of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, residents in the capital Kyiv were placed under a 35-hour curfew - but that didn't stop the prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic from traveling there by train.

The prime ministers sat down for a briefing with their Ukrainian counterpart Denis Shmyhal, and President Volodymyr Zelensky, who thanked them for the "powerful" gesture of support.

At an intensive care hospital on the western outskirts of the city, staff described being treated like hostages by Russian forces.

The regional governor, Pavlo Kyrylenko, said the facility had been all but destroyed by shelling in recent days, but that staff had continued to treat patients in the basement.

Separately, about 2,000 cars were able to leave Mariupol along a humanitarian evacuation route, according to city authorities. Before the war, around 400,000 people lived in the city, which has endured intense bombardment by Russian forces. The city council says well over 2,000 civilians have died.

A cameraman and a journalist working for Fox News were killed when their vehicle was struck by incoming fire on the outskirts of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, staff at the US network said.
