At least 11 civilians were killed and dozens more wounded on Monday because of Russian strikes on Ukraine’s second most populated city Kharkiv, the regional governor said.

Earlier in the day, Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced the West as an “Empire of Lies” as he discussed the state of the country’s economy with officials following the imposition of sanctions against Moscow.

He made the comments hours after talks between Ukraine and Russia started at the border with Moscow’s ally Belarus.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that he was not optimistic about the discussions. He also urged the European Union to grant his country “immediate” membership as Russia’s attacks continued for the fifth day.

Though, reports said that Ukrainian troops slowed Russia’s advance and held onto the capital Kyiv and other important cities.

Here are the top updates of the day:
