    On the eve of the two-year anniversary of the war in Ukraine, the United States unveiled a fresh slate of sanctions on more than 500 targets tied to Russia's invasion and the death of outspoken Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny.
    Meanwhile, CNN went to Kherson, the first major Ukrainian city to be captured by Russian forces. It was liberated by Kyiv’s forces nine months later, but as the war enters its third year, Kherson feels as if it is under remote occupation. Residents describe the shelling from Russian forces under a mile away across the Dnipro River as the worst yet.  
    Here are some other key developments in the war:
    A new counteroffensive: Ukraine will prepare a new counteroffensive following a campaign that didn't bring the desired results, President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with Fox News published Thursday. The situation on the battlefield "is not a stalemate" and "indeed, it's very complicated in the East," Zelensky said, claiming that Russia's "only" success over nine months has been taking control of Avdiivka.
