Human Rights Council overwhelmingly voted to create a top-level investigation into violations committed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Fighting remains intense in central Ukraine as Russian forces continue to bombard Kyiv in an attempt to take the capital. But their miles-long convoy north of the city still does not appear to be moving, U.S. officials say. In the southern port city of Kherson, Russian troops control much of the city, including key facilities such as broadcast towers.

Russian forces captured a Ukrainian nuclear power plant — the largest in Europe. After a massive fire was extinguished, Ukrainian workers continue to operate the facility. No release of radioactive material has been reported.

A third round of talks between Ukrainian and Russian delegations is in the works, potentially as soon as this weekend.

A new law in Russia threatens up to 15 years in prison for anyone deemed to spread “false information” about the country’s military and its activity. Other penalties target calls for sanctions against Russia and calls for not deploying Russia’s armed forces.
