Russia-Ukraine War Highlights : Russia-Ukraine conflict entered its sixth day on Tuesday, with fighting escalating across the country. Russia attacked the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv as it continued its invasion despite rising international criticism, including a war crimes investigation, penalties and a FIFA ban from the World Cup.
The Russian side continued to strike residential areas, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called for a global ban on Russian planes and ships after their first meetings since the war began failed to produce a breakthrough.
The five-hour negotiations, which were aimed at resolving the issue between Moscow and Kyiv, ended with no quick agreements. A second round of talks on the Polish-Belarusian boundary has been agreed upon by the two parties.
According to Ukraine, more than 350 civilians have been killed during the assault, including 14 children, and over 500,000 people have fled the country.
