Artillery Exchange Between Ukrainian and Russian Forces in Lysychansk.

Ukrainian servicemen and civilians are seen during an artillery duel between Ukrainian and Russian troops in Lysychansk, in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donbas.

READ MORE: A Ukrainian official said their army is running out of ammunition in its battles with Russian forces. In the Mykolaiv region near the front line in the south of the country, the regional governor called for urgent international military assistance.

“Russia's army is more powerful; they have a lot of artillery and ammo. For now, this is a war of artillery ... and we are out of ammo,” Vitaliy Kim said. “The help of Europe and America is very, very important.”

Ukraine is in talks with other countries about providing more weapons. Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, said in a tweet Saturday he had spoken with his Polish counterpart, Zbigniew Rau, to discuss future deliveries of heavy weapons. Kuleba said the two also discussed placing another round of EU sanctions on Russia.

On the battlefield, fierce fighting continued in the Donbas region as Ukraine’s military launched several counterattacks in the Russian-occupied Kherson region in the south.

In the capital, Kyiv, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen made an unannounced visit meeting with Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, to discuss the country’s restoration, and efforts toward European Union membership.
