Mariupol in Ukraine has been “destroyed” and will take “years to rebuild”, the city’s mayor has said.
An official confirmed an estimated 300 people died in last week’s attack on a theatre.
Satellite images showed the Mariupol Drama Theatre before it was bombed, with the word “children” written in Russian on the pavement in front of and behind the building.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has re-occupied some towns and defensive positions up to 35km east of Kyiv, the UK Ministry of Defence said.
The US and the EU have announced a major gas deal, in an attempt to reduce Europe’s reliance on Russian energy.
