Ukraine forces push Russians out of Kharkiv as NATO, G7 hold talks on war | Ukraine Update

Russia’s war on Ukraine is in the spotlight at high-level diplomatic talks in Germany. Foreign ministers from NATO countries are meeting over their long-term strategy. Ministers from Finland and Sweden are expected to meet their Turkish counterpart there, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan indicated he may resist their bid to join the military alliance.
Meanwhile foreign ministers from Group of Seven nations are continuing their talks. They’ve pledged to support Ukraine "until victory." The spotlight there has been on food security concerns, with global supplies from Ukraine hit by Russian blockades.
German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who is hosting the G-7 meeting, said Russia was waging a "food war" on the world.
Ukrainian forces appear close to claiming victory over Russia’s attempt to take the second largest city, Kharkiv. Western military analysts said Russian troops were withdrawing from areas around the city due to limited reinforcements and Ukrainian counterattacks. Despite the latest gains, President Volodomyr Zelenskyy used his nightly address to warn of a long war ahead. He said more than 1,000 settlements had now been deoccupied.
A Russian soldier has gone on trial in Kyiv, accused of committing war crimes during the first weeks of the invasion of Ukraine. The 21-year old is alleged to have shot an unarmed civilian in a car. It’s the first trial of its kind, with Ukrainian prosecutors preparing cases against at least forty other soldiers and investigating thousands more possible war crimes.
Ukrainian and British officials say Russian forces have suffered heavy losses trying to cross a river in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine. Kyiv has released video it says shows the aftermath of a strike on a Russian pontoon bridge. Britain’s defense ministry said Russia lost what it described as "significant armored maneuver elements" in the attack earlier this week.
Sweden’s foreign minister says her country’s accession to NATO would prevent conflicts in northern Europe. Ann Linde was presenting a parliamentary report on security as Sweden considers applying to join the alliance, in the face of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
