Russia said its forces took full control of the Azovstal steel works, the last holdout of Ukrainian troops in Mariupol, after the remaining defenders surrendered. The strategic southern port city has been devastated in almost three months of assault.

Finance chiefs from the Group of Seven major economies pledged to deliver almost $20 billion of support to Ukraine this year. The European Union said it may sell bonds in July to help finance an aid package.
