  • Russia dismissed reports of progress in peace negotiations with Ukraine, saying the results of a round of talks in Istanbul were nothing “too promising,” according to Radio Free Europe.
  • Poland plans to phase out all Russian oil imports by the end of the year, while Germany issued a warning about natural gas levels and urged citizens to conserve, underscoring how Russia’s war in Ukraine has heightened concerns over securing energy supplies to power Europe, the Associated Press reported. Meanwhile, a senior Russian legislator told the European Union that if it wanted Russian natural gas, it would have to pay in rubles, and that oil, grain, metals, fertilizer, coal, and lumber exports might soon be priced similarly, Reuters added.
  • The EU Advisory Mission to Ukraine’s office in the besieged city of Mariupol was struck by Russian artillery. No injuries were reported, Politico noted. Meanwhile, the UN human rights mission told Reuters that thousands of people may have died in the besieged port city of Mariupol in southern Ukraine since the bombardment began four weeks ago.
