Russian troops bombed the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and the port city of Mariupol on Wednesday. US President Biden arrived in Brussels for a series of summit meetings on the war and is expected to announce new sanctions against Russia.

Here are the 10 latest developments of the Russian invasion of Ukraine:

  1. President Joe Biden arrived in Europe on Wednesday on a mission to strengthen Western unity and increase unprecedented sanctions against Russia. Biden is preparing to give a press conference at NATO headquarters on Thursday and on Friday will fly to Poland, which borders Ukraine.

  2. The NATO, G7 and EU summit today will discuss Russia’s attack on Ukraine, which begins on February 24th. The conflict has caused more than 3.6 million refugees to flee Ukraine and has led to the unprecedented isolation of the Russian economy.

  3. NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said that the allies would sign the deployment of four “combat groups” to members of eastern Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. He also signaled cybersecurity assistance as well as equipment “to help Ukraine protect against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats”.

  5. Satellite photos show massive destruction in Mariupol, once a city of 400,000 people, with pillars of smoke billowing from burning residential apartment buildings.

  6. Nearly 100,000 people are still trapped in the ruins of Mariupol, said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

  7. Human Rights Watch described the southern port city as “a scene of a frozen hell full of corpses and destroyed buildings”.

  8. Zelensky called on people around the world to take to the streets on Thursday, a month before the day since Russia invaded, to demand an end to the war.

  9. Russia’s climate envoy Anatoly Chubais has resigned and left the country, citing his opposition to President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine, Bloomberg reported. Chubais was the architect of Russia’s post-Soviet economic reform.

  10. Russia will use nuclear weapons in the context of the Ukraine conflict if it faces an “existential threat”, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a CNN interview.
