Ukrainian and Russian officials conclude a third round of talks

1 min read

The two sides met for another round of talks on Monday with progress reported on the issue of humanitarian corridors, according to The Associated Press. More than 1.7 million people have fled Ukraine in the days since the Russian invasion began, the United Nations Refugee Agency reports.

Ukrainian officials say Russia’s proposal to open “humanitarian corridors” is not genuine because it evacuates Ukrainian civilians only to Belarus and Russia.

The UN human rights office said on Monday it has recorded more than 400 civilian deaths in Ukraine. Russia left its seats empty in the UN’s top court on Monday as Ukraine asked the court to issue an emergency ruling requiring Russia to stop its invasion.

Mykhailo Podolyay said without elaboration that “there were some small positive shifts regarding logistics of humanitarian corridors.”
