“For several weeks we have been trying to organize stable humanitarian corridors for Mariupol residents. Almost all our attempts have been unfortunately obstructed by shelling or deliberate terror by Russian occupiers. Nevertheless, we have still managed to evacuate 7,026 residents from Mariupol. We’ll continue this important work tomorrow” Bloomberg disclosed
Ukrainian army will not give up on Mariupol after Russian army told them ro surrender their weapons. They simply said no because they have invaded their land, and they will continue to fight for Mariupol and for Ukraine.
