On the eastern front, Russia and Ukraine disputed control of the salt mining town of Soledar, a gateway to the city of Bakhmut that has become a recent focus of the fighting. The Kremlin claimed to have seized the town, while Ukraine’s 46th Air Assault Brigade said fighters were surrounded but holding on. Here’s the latest on the war and its ripple effects across the globe.
- At least five people were killed and about 40 injured in the residential building attack, Dnipro regional governor Valentyn Reznichenko said on Telegram. Seven of the wounded were children, and a 9-year-old girl was in critical condition. Residents were trapped as flames engulfed part of the structure, Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the president’s office, said on Telegram. About 20 people had been rescued, three of them children.
- The initial blasts hit the city early Saturday, Kyiv’s mayor said, urging residents to go to shelters. He said missile fragments landed in a nonresidential part of the city, where a fire erupted with no casualties. The regional administration reported a fire at an infrastructure site, and the deputy head of Ukraine’s presidential office said the strike targeted “critical infrastructure facilities.” The Washington Post could not immediately verify the type of weapon or the target.
- “Most likely, these are missiles that flew along a ballistic trajectory from the northern direction,” Yuri Ignat, a spokesman for Ukraine’s air force said about the earlier blast. He said Ukraine was unable to detect or shoot down ballistic missiles.
- A leader of the Wagner Group suggested the Kremlin stole credit for advances in Soledar. The Russian Defense Ministry, which had credited its troops for the offensive, later said the Wagner Group’s private military forces were responsible for attacks in the town. Kyiv maintained the battle was not yet over. A takeover of Soledar would give Russia a victory after months of military setbacks.
- Kharkiv’s governor also reported a missile attack on infrastructure in the northeast region on Saturday. Oleh Synehubov warned there could be emergency power outages as a result. The mayor of Kharkiv city said missiles struck an industrial district of the regional capital and authorities were assessing the damage.
- Britain plans to send Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine, after Kyiv’s allies had been reluctant to answer its calls for Western battle tanks. In a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Saturday, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak “outlined the UK’s ambition to intensify our support to Ukraine,” including with the British main battle tanks, his office told British media. Zelensky, for his part, said he thanked Sunak for “decisions that will not only strengthen us on the battlefield, but also send the right signal to other partners.”
- The U.N. atomic energy agency is set to station safety experts at Ukraine’s nuclear power facilities, as part of efforts to avert a nuclear accident during the war, it said in a statement. International Atomic Energy Agency head Rafael Mariano Grossi will visit Ukraine next week to launch the plan and meet with government officials.
- Western fighting vehicles promised to Ukraine could provide tactical advantages, The Washington Post’s Claire Parker reports. The vehicles, including U.S. Bradley Fighting Vehicles, could help Ukraine scout enemy positions, transport its troops and fire on armored Russian vehicles….
