Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours:

The Ukrainian army has damaged one of the bridges over the Dnieper river

Active fighting is taking place in the southern parts of the country. Ukrainian forces report that they have damaged one of two bridges over the Dnieper River.

Dozens died in massive Russian shelling in Dnipropetrovsk region. According to pro-Russian separatists, Russian forces have entered the towns of Soledar and Bakhmut. Satellite images show heavy damage after the series of explosions at the Saki airbase in Crimea.

A donor conference for Ukraine will be held today in Copenhagen. In his late video address, President Zelensky said that Kyiv would receive aid, including more weapons.

In fact, the question of time is directly related to the question of the losses that Russia will suffer. The greater the losses of the occupiers, the faster we will be able to liberate the country and guarantee the security of Ukraine. The time will come when the occupiers will flee from Kharkiv, from Donbas, from Crimea," said the Ukrainian president.
