The New Arab's live coverage of the latest from the Russian invasion of Ukraine concludes for today.
Here were the key developments from Saturday:
Russia renews attacks on Kyiv
Russia steps up air strikes on military facilities in Kyiv, a day after warning it will renew its assault on the capital in response to what it says are Ukrainian attacks on Russian soil.
Moscow says it used sea-based, long-range missiles to hit a tank factory on Saturday.
Kremlin retaliates over warship
On Friday, Russian strikes seriously damage the Vizar plant, near Kyiv's international airport, which produces Neptune cruise missiles.
Neptunes were allegedly used to hit Russia's Moskva warship, the flagship of Russia's Black Sea fleet. The vessel has sunk.
"The number and scale of missile strikes against targets in Kyiv will increase in response to any terrorist attacks or sabotage committed by the Kyiv nationalist regime on Russian territory," the defence ministry in Moscow says.
Zelensky warns over nuclear weapons
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Russia could use nuclear weapons out of frustration at battlefield setbacks, echoing comments by CIA director William Burns.
He says "all of the world" should be worried that Russia "began to speak about... nuclear weapons or some chemical weapons".
"For them, life of the people is nothing," he tells CNN. "Let's not be afraid - be ready."
Sanctions and reprisals
Amid escalating tit-for-tat sanctions, Russia bans entry to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and several of his senior ministers.
"This step was taken as a response to London's unbridled information and political campaign aimed at isolating Russia internationally, creating conditions for restricting our country and strangling the domestic economy," the foreign ministry says.
The Kremlin also steps up a crackdown on dissent at home.
The government adds nine prominent Kremlin critics and journalists to its growing list of "foreign agents", and a Russian court orders the pre-trial jailing of a Siberian news editor for alleging that 11 riot police refused to join the military campaign in Ukraine.
Five million flee Ukraine
More than five million people have now fled Ukraine since the Russian invasion on February 24, the United Nations says.
