Turkey disrupts Sweden, Finland NATO accession

And other key developments.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he won’t allow Sweden and Finland to join NATO because of their stances on Kurdish militants, and President Vladimir Putin warned that Russia would respond if the Nordic nations move forward with membership of the military alliance. Ukraine said 53 severely wounded fighters and more than 200 other soldiers were allowed to leave the Azovstal steel plant in the port city of Mariupol. They will be held in Russian-occupied territory and may be part of a future exchange of prisoners, according to a senior Ukrainian defense official.
