There was no sign of besieged Ukrainain forces surrendering in Mariupol Sunday morning, after a Russian deadline expired at dawn in the port city in the south east of the country. Russia gave soldiers holed up in the Avozstal steel works, a final remaining Ukrainian stronghold, a further few hours to lay down their weapons, offering a guarantee that they would be not be killed. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in video remarks posted Saturday evening that “the situation in Mariupol remains as severe as possible. Just inhuman.”

Meanwhile, Russian rockets hit the city of Brovary, just east of Kyiv, Sunday morning, after attacks on Kyiv and the western city of Lviv Saturday. Moscow has withdrawn its forces from those regions to focus on eastern Ukraine, but airstrikes have continued. Russian forces were continuing to gather around the eastern city of Izyum, farther inland from Mariupol, where significant gains have not materialized from small attacks, according to an analysis by the Institute for the Study of War, which said it was unclear whether the forces there were simply yet to be bolstered or if they were “setting conditions for a larger-scale, better-coordinated offensive” soon.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and other senior officials will visit Washington in coming days to attend financial meetings, a World Bank official told The Washington Post on Saturday, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the visit has yet to be officially announced. The visit marks the first time that a high-level Ukrainian delegation will travel to the United States since the invasion began.
