On the 12th day of its invasion, Russia announced yet another ceasefire and humanitarian corridors to permit civilians to flee war-torn Ukraine. However, the Russian armed forces continued to invade Ukrainian cities, reported AP. The recent announcement from the Russian side came after two failed previous ceasefire attempts. Russian Defence Ministry announced that civilians would be allowed to leave Kyiv, Mariupol and Kharkiv and Sumy.
In a statement released on Facebook, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry blamed Russia of interrupting the opening of humanitarian corridors of the evacuations of civilians. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry insisted that Russian troops continued to attack Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol, Sumy, Mykolayiv, Volnovas and other places which made it impossible for people to evacuate the places. On the other hand, the third round of talks between the delegations of Russia and Ukraine have started. The meeting comes as an attempt to reach an agreement on a ceasefire and a safe passage corridor for people.
