A second attempt to allow citizens to evacuate besieged Mariupol has failed after reports the ceasefire had been broken for a second consecutive day, the International Committee of the Red Cross said.
The city council said continued Russian shelling made the safe evacuation of civilians impossible, with the city now in its fifth day without water, power or sanitation.
On Sunday, Zelenskyy warned that Russian forces are preparing to shell the port city of Odesa in what he describes as a “historical crime.”
Over 1.5 million refugees have fled Ukraine in the last 10 days, according to the UN. Zelenskyy said he spoke to US President Joe Biden and discussed military assistance and financial support.
