  • The European Union will propose initiating a significant training program for Ukrainian soldiers in neighboring countries, according to EU foreign policy leader Josep Borrell, Radio Free Europe reported. Borrell also rejected a proposal by EU countries bordering Russia to bar Russian citizens from entering the bloc, as the union’s foreign ministers prepare to discuss a ban on tourist visas next week, Bloomberg noted.
  • Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy threatened to halt all talks with Russia if Ukrainian prisoners of war were paraded in the occupied city of Mariupol and placed on “an absolutely disgusting and absurd show trial,” the New York Times wrote.
  • Ukraine’s capital, Kyiv, has banned public celebrations of the country’s independence from Russian-dominated Soviet rule this week, citing a heightened fear of a Russian attack, Reuters added.
