The U.S. House neared a deal on legislation that would remove Russia’s “most-favored-nation” trade status as President Joe Biden branded leader Vladimir Putin a “war criminal” and offered $800 million-worth of new weaponry to Ukraine.

Ukraine’s military said Russian strikes continued on infrastructure sites and on densely populated areas of cities, with another apartment building hit in the capital, Kyiv. But it said Russia’s forces remain bogged down on the ground. Russia said its troops were advancing through the town of Sievierodonetsk in the Luhansk region in the east.
