We're pausing our live coverage of the Ukraine war for now, but will be resuming on Saturday.
Thanks for joining us. Our editors today were Thom Poole, Chris Giles and James Clarke. Our writers were James FitzGerald, Emily McGarvey, Robert Greenall, Jeremy Gahagan, Leo Sands and Yaroslav Lukov.
You can read more of one of our main stories today - the possible withdrawal of Ukrainian forces from the big eastern city of Severodonetsk - here.
