(FOX NEWS) – NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Tuesday that he has “convened an extraordinary summit” for next Thursday.

“We will address Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, our strong support for Ukraine, and further strengthening NATO’s deterrence and defense,” he said in a tweet.

President Biden is scheduled to travel to Europe next week for the NATO summit about the war in Ukraine, the White House says.

Residents of Mariupol, Ukraine, have reportedly contacted a human rights organization with complaints that Russian forces have occupied an intensive care hospital.

The Media Initiative for Human Rights in Ukraine said in a Tuesday Facebook post that residents of the city contacted its hotline to report the occupation of Russian troops at the Mariupol Regional Intensive Care Hospital.

“Hospital staff and patients are held hostage,” the media hotline said.

Russian forces are apparently firing at the windows of the hospital in an effort to trigger a response from Ukrainian soldiers, according to the Media Initiative for Human Rights.
