Her city council Like Mariupol In Ukraine today at 12:00 noon (local time and Greek time) it was announced that the new operation to evacuate civilians from the city will begin. For this purpose, there will be a temporary ceasefire from 10:00 to 21:00, the same source added.

Attempts by civilians to escape ended in failure as yesterday’s ceasefire was violated

It may be recalled that an attempt was made yesterday to establish a humanitarian route and a ceasefire was declared to evacuate the civilians, but it was not carried out as the bombing continued. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that “continued bombings could not open humanitarian corridors for the safe evacuation of civilians and the provision of medicines and food.”

In particular, the deputy mayor of Mariupol said People trying to leave the city are constantly bombed. Deputy Mayor Sergei Orloff told the BBC News: “At first our people said the bombing had stopped for a while, but they continue to use heavy artillery and rockets to bomb Mariupol.” People are very scared. “

Orloff said city officials had received information that a fight was taking place “on the road to Zaporizhia” and that it was dangerous. “It simply came to our notice then [η κατάπαυση του πυρός] There is no truth on the Russian side, they are constantly destroying Mariupol. “We decided to take our citizens back because being on the streets is not safe.” He said the bombing of the city and the fighting on the road to Saporisia made it “impossible to evacuate people.”

The Ukrainian government initially said the plan About 200,000 people were to be evacuated from Mariupol And 15,000 from Volnovoka, and the Red Cross guaranteed a ceasefire lasting until 16:00 Greek time.

Reuters quoted the Russian RIA news agency as saying that no one was using the two humanitarian corridors set up near the Ukrainian cities of Mariupol and Volnovoka, and that Ukrainian “nationalists” had been accused of blocking public exits.

The Ukrainian Foreign Minister also said that Russia was accusing Ukraine of violating the deportation of civilians. “They are misleading and misinformation to justify the crimes of the Russian military.”

The ministry said in a statement that Russian forces had opened fire on humanitarian corridors during a partial ceasefire, contrary to reports from Ukrainian officials. “Whether humanitarian routes work Or in the days to come, the parties will continue to protect the public and civilian infrastructure “According to international humanitarian law, those who want to leave and those who remain,” he said.

“The so-called humanitarian corridors or other measures aimed at providing relief to the victims of the conflict should be well designed and implemented with the agreement of the parties concerned,” he said.

The occupation of Mariupol, a city of about 450,000 people in the Sea of ​​Azov, will be a turning point in the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This would allow a crossroads between Russian forces from the annexed Crimea, which already occupies the main ports of Berdyansk and Kerson, and Russian troops in the separatists and Donbass.

Because Russia wants to control Mariupol

Mariupol faced “incessant attacks” of residents without electricity and water as Russian missiles hit critical infrastructure. The city is understood to be in Ukraine’s hands, but British secret services say it is Mariupol is “more likely” to be surrounded by Russian forces.

According to Sky News, if the city’s main port falls, Moscow will allow the creation of a land corridor between the Crimea and the rebel-held areas of Luhansk and Donetsk.


Crimea was annexed by Russia in 2014, while two parts of eastern Ukraine were recognized by Vladimir Putin independently before the invasion last month. Volnovoka is located north of Mariupol, between the port and the Donetsk region. Since February 24 the small town has faced significant Russian attacks.
