Ukraine slams as “completely immoral” that evacuation corridors under a Russian ceasefire lead to Belarus and Russia.
“This is a completely immoral story. People’s suffering is used to create the desired television picture,” a spokesman for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says in a statement, according to the Reuters news agency.
“These are citizens of Ukraine, they should have the right to evacuate to the territory of Ukraine,” the statement reads.
A Russian task force announced a ceasefire for civilians from Kyiv, Mariupol, Kharkiv and Sumy. It wasn’t immediately clear how long it would last.
