At the same time, new negotiations began between Russia and Ukraine. This is the fourth round. Ukraine’s chief negotiator Mykhailo Podolyak said the first goal was to reach a ceasefire.
Ukraine also said it was trying to create ten humanitarian corridors to expel the civilian population.
The situation is very bad in the city of Mariupol. The strategically important city is besieged by Russian troops. More than 2,500 are said to have lost their lives in the city, according to Ukrainian authorities.
It is very difficult to get verified information from the occupied and besieged areas.
