Mariupol resists and Russian advances stall

The Ukrainian government, which on Monday rejected the Russian ultimatum and refused to surrender the city, has assured that it is focusing all its efforts on evacuating civilians, but that for now there is no agreement with Russia to open humanitarian corridors.

However, Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk has stated that three routes will work for the exit of civiliansall in the direction of the neighboring city of Zaporizhia, more to the north. The evacuation will take place daily until the entire population has been evacuated from Mariupol, Vereschchuk said.

A total of 21 buses and trucks with humanitarian aid have left Zaporizhia en route to Mariupol.

The Russians, stagnant and without provisions
