Here are the highlights of events related to the war in Ukraine over the past 24 hours:
Powerful explosions in Mykolaiv
Powerful explosions early this morning in Mykolaiv reported the mayor of the Ukrainian city. It is not known what caused them, but local authorities are urging people to stay indoors.
Ljubljana – A week of top-level meetings has finally affirmed the conviction that the war in Ukraine will be long, Dnevnik says on Friday as it comments on the EU, G7 and NATO summits.
At least 17 people were killed and dozens wounded on July 1 in missile strikes on Ukraine's Odessa region, a day after Russian troops abandoned positions on a strategic island in a major setback to the Kremlin's invasion.
The news came after NATO leaders wrapped up a summit in Madrid, with US President Joe Biden announcing $800 million in new weapons for Ukraine.
"I conveyed President Zelensky's message to President Putin," Widodo said after a meeting with Putin in Moscow, the BBC reports.
On Wednesday, Widodo met with Zelensky in Kyiv, and yesterday in Moscow with Putin.
He did not reveal the content of the message, but added that he expressed his "willingness" to help initiate communication between the two presidents.
