The New Arab concludes its live coverage of the latest updates from the Russian invasion of Ukraine for today.
Here were the key developments:
Ukraine urges China to condemn Russia
Ukraine called on China to join the West in condemning "Russian barbarism" after the US warned Beijing of consequences if it backed Moscow's attack on the country.
"China can be the global security system's important element if it makes a right decision to support the civilised countries' coalition and condemn Russian barbarism," presidential aide Mikhailo Podolyak said.
Russia uses hypersonic missiles
Russia said it used hypersonic missiles for the first time in Ukraine to destroy a weapons storage site in the west of the country.
Hypersonic missiles travel faster than the speed of sound and can manoeuvre mid-flight, making them hard to track and intercept.
Russia's defence ministry said it used the technology to strike an underground arms depot in the village of Deliatyn, around 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Ukraine's border with Romania.
Air raids on Mykolaiv
Russian air raids on Mykolaiv were taking place in quick succession on Saturday, Vitaly Kim, head of the regional administration, said, a day after a deadly strike on a military barracks in the southern Ukrainian city.
Ukraine's President calls for talks with Russia
Volodymyr Zelensky called for urgent talks with Russia, saying in a Facebook video they are the "only chance for Russia to minimise the damage done with their own mistakes".
UN warns of growing humanitarian need in Ukraine
The UN warned that the humanitarian needs are becoming ever more urgent across eastern Ukraine, with a potentially fatal lack of food, water and medicines in besieged cities such as Mariupol and Sumy.
