The two sides held intense discussions on humanitarian issues such as food, medicine and civilian evacuation, and agreed to meet again "very soon."

Here's the latest on the invasion:

Aid for Ukraine: President Biden is seeking $10 billion from Congress to go toward defense equipment, humanitarian aid, sanctions enforcement and other priorities.

What it's like inside Kherson: A resident tells NPR the city woke to loud explosions, and she sees Russian troops and snipers everywhere. “They’re throughout the city,” she says. “I really miss my life when they weren’t here. I want back those days.”

One million refugees: The number fleeing across the Ukrainian border has reached a grim milestone, according to the U.N. About half are in Poland, with Hungary, Moldova and Slovakia being the other top destinations.
