Summary

Heavy fighting is raging at the besieged steel plant as Russian forces attempt to finish off the city's last-ditch defenders and complete the capture of the strategically vital port.As Thursday draws to a close in Kyiv and in Moscow, here are the key developments of the day:A third evacuation operation is underway from the destroyed and besieged southern city of Mariupol, according to the United Nations secretary-general. Hundreds more civilians are still trapped inside the plant, along with about 2,000 Ukrainian soldiers, Ukrainian authorities estimate.Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said he did not expect Russia's military incursion in Ukraine to "drag on this way." In a 90-minute interview with The Associated Press, the authoritarian leader and longtime Moscow ally also defended the invasion, which Russian authorities call a "special military operation."Israel says Russian President Vladimir Putin apologized for his foreign minister's Monday remarks about Nazism.
