Ukraine won back control over Snake Island, which Russia occupied in February. Ukrainian officials said Russian troops evacuated after Ukraine's overnight bombardment. Russia said it left the island as a "goodwill gesture" for Ukraine's grain exports. The strategic outpost in the Black Sea is where Ukrainian soldiers famously refused to surrender to the Russian warship Moskva.

President Biden said the U.S. would provide $800 million more in security assistance for Ukraine. Speaking at the close of a NATO summit, Biden said the war "will not end with Russia defeating Ukraine" and that allies would support Ukraine "as long as it takes." Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier said his country had no "problem" with Finland and Sweden joining NATO but would have to respond if the alliance built up a military presence along its northern borders.

Amnesty International said the Mariupol theater bombing was a clear war crime. A new report by the human rights organization concluded that the attack "was almost certainly carried out by Russian fighter aircraft." Hundreds of civilians sheltered in the building during the March siege of the southern port city that Russian troops now occupy.
