Russia will hold fire to allow evacuation of civilians

Russia will open new humanitarian corridors across multiple Ukrainian cities on Monday to allow civilians to evacuate.

The ceasefire will take place from 10:00 Moscow time (07:00 GMT) according to Russia’s defence ministry, with evacuation routes set up in the capital Kyiv, as well as Kharkiv, Mariupol and Sumy.

Over the weekend, two efforts to open a route to allow civilians to evacuate from Mariupol in the country’s south-east collapsed. Russia and Ukraine traded accusations for the failure.
