Latest news live update: Ukrainian President Zelensky asks for Israel’s help for the release of the mayor of Melitopol

Latest news updates live, March 13, 2022: Russian forces pounded the Ukrainian port city of Mariupol on Saturday, bombarding its downtown as residents took cover at an iconic mosque and elsewhere to avoid blasts. Fighting also raged on the outskirts of the capital, Kiev, as Russia continued its bombardment of other cities across the country. Mariupol has endured some of Ukraine’s worst punishments since the Russian invasion. Relentless blockades have thwarted repeated attempts to bring food, water and medicine to the city of 430,000 and evacuate its trapped civilians. More than 1,500 people died in Mariupol during the siege, according to the mayor’s office, and the shelling even halted efforts to bury the dead in mass graves. Talks aimed at reaching a ceasefire broke down again on Saturday, and while the United States announced its intention to provide another $200 million to Ukraine for weapons, a senior Russian diplomat warned that Moscow could attack foreign shipments of military equipment.Read also – A man stabs 2 workers at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and flees
