Russian forces seized Europe's biggest nuclear power plant in southeastern Ukraine in heavy fighting but a huge blaze on the site was put out. Russian forces also bombarded Ukraine's capital Kyiv and surrounded several other cities.

No damage to reactors

The Zaporozhzhia nuclear plant was undamaged by what UN nuclear chief Rafael Grossi said he believed was a Russian projectile. Moscow blamed Ukrainian saboteurs for the attack.

 Ukraine says Russians driven from port city Ukrainians have driven invading Russian forces out of Mykolayiv but fighting continues on the city outskirts, the governor of the Black Sea port said.

City of Mariupol has no water, heating

The eastern Black Sea port of Mariupol is without water and heating and food is scarce, its mayor Vadym Boychenko said, appealing for military help. "We are simply being destroyed." * Civilian casualties mounting

At least 331 civilians are confirmed killed and 675 injured in Ukraine since Russia's invasion began on Feb. 24, but the real toll is likely much higher, the U.N. human rights office said.

No to no-fly zones over Ukraine

NATO allies rejected Ukraine's demand for no-fly zones, saying that would lead to an even more brutal war, but EU countries said they were weighing more sanctions on Russia.
