Mariupol is on the verge of fall as Russia issues an ultimatum to surrender to Ukrainian troops


Mariupol, the last bastion of Ukrainian troops in the south-east of the country, is very close to falling.

Russian troops gave Ukrainian soldiers in the region a chilling ultimatum to “surrender or die”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky admitted that the situation in Mariupol remains “extremely serious” but did not acknowledge that the city could fall. He warned Moscow that the peace talks would be abandoned if the city’s remaining defenders were killed.

Despite Russian assurances that its offensive would focus on the east of the country, the sinking of the guided-missile cruiser Moskva, which Russia attributes to various non-combat causes, has led to new attacks on targets in the capital. and in western Ukraine.

In Kharkiv, the continuation of the Russian bombardments leaves the city in ruins. More and more people are trying to flee to the west, perhaps with the ultimate goal of leaving the country. Ukrainian authorities say Friday’s attack by Russian forces left several dead and injured more than 50 people.

Last week the EU announced it would provide funding and support to prosecutors at the International Criminal Court to help document and collect evidence of the war crimes Russian troops have left in their wake.
