Russia Ukraine War News Highlights | More than 113,000 Ukrainians have fled to Romania in the first six days since Russia invaded Ukraine by land, sea and air, border police data showed on Wednesday. They have entered Romania through its four land border checkpoints with Ukraine, but also through its checkpoints with Moldova, data showed. More than half of them have already exited the country on their way to Bulgaria and Hungary.

Russia Ukraine War News Highlights | The Russian army claimed on Wednesday it had taken control of the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson as Moscow's invasion of the pro-Western country went into its seventh day. "The Russian divisions of the armed forces have taken the regional centre of Kherson under full control,"  data-wsc-lang="en_US" data-wsc-id="l098piocolxnh4knc">defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in televised remarks.

At least 21 people were killed and 112 wounded in shelling in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv in the last 24 hours, regional governor Oleg Synegubov said on Wednesday. The authorities have said Russian missile attacks hit the centre of Ukraine's second-largest city, including residential areas and the regional administration building.

More than half of them have already exited the country on their way to Bulgaria and Hungary.

Over 450,000 people entered Poland from Ukraine since a Russian invasion of the country started last Thursday, Deputy Interior Minister Pawel Szefernaker told private Radio Zet on Wednesday. He added that the number of people entering Poland fell slightly on Tuesday to 98,000 from a record number of over 100,000 on Monday.

Russia's war against Ukraine is a week old, but its consequences are already reverberating across the globe: it has upended international relations, left Moscow isolated, united a previously divided West, and raised the specter of a nuclear standoff.

    Russia Ukraine War News LIVE Updates | ING puts new business in Russia on ice over Ukraine: AFP

    Top Dutch bank ING said Wednesday it will freeze any new business deals with Russian companies, as the European Union moved to cut Russian banks from the SWIFT payment system.

    The Amsterdam-based ING also said it would abide by international sanctions and "have processes in place to respond to sanctions in a timely way across our network."

    "We strongly condemn the invasion of Ukraine, the devastating and heartbreaking impact it has on people's lives and the threat it poses to international stability and security," said ING chief executive Steven van Rijswijk.

    "We have decided to not do any new business with Russian companies," he said in a statement.

    The freeze would mainly relate to new loans, a core business for ING in Russia, an ING official told AFP.

    The bank said it would also waive fees for personal money transfer transactions to Ukraine and donate three million euros ($3.3 million) to the UN children's fund for relief efforts.

    The EU on Wednesday cut seven Russian banks from the SWIFT payment system in the latest ratcheting up of the Western-coordinated sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, now in its seventh day.
