Russia’s Defense Ministry says the Russian armed forces are proposing the surrender of Ukrainian forces and their mercenaries based on purely humanitarian grounds. They will have to suspend their military operations and surrender their weapons by 2pm Moscow time today.

Mariupol is located between Donetsk and Luhansk, a pro-Russian territory in eastern Ukraine, and Crimea to the south. This city is strategically very important for Russia. The city is now under Russian military control. However, there are still strongholds of Ukrainian troops in the area around the Mariupol Azvastal steel plant.

Mikhail Podoliak, an adviser to the Ukrainian president, said on Tuesday night that Russia was carrying out bombings at the Azovstal factory. However, the details were not known. Mikhail Podoliak wrote on Twitter that the world is silent even after watching the killing of children on the internet.

The United States, Canada and the United Kingdom have already promised to send more weapons to Ukraine. The White House says new sanctions against Russia are being prepared. US President Joe Biden may announce a new military aid package for Ukraine. Last week, he announced a কোটি 600 million package. Sources told Reuters that the new package would be the same size.
