Ukraine-Russia war LIVE – Evil Putin’s bloodthirsty troops SHOOT innocent civilians hours after saying they could leave
Vladimir Putin’s Russian forces have been accused of violating a ceasefire at the Azovstal steel works – killing one Ukrainian fighter and wounding six others.
Mariupol authorities have also accused Russian troops of firing at a car involved in the evacuation efforts.
Mariupol city council said in an online post: “During the ceasefire on the territory of the Azovstal plant a car was hit by Russians using an anti-tank guided weapon. This car was moving towards civilians in order to evacuate them from the plant”.
“As a result of the shelling, 1 fighter was killed and 6 were wounded. The enemy continues to violate all agreements and fails to adhere to security guarantees for the evacuation of civilians.”
Russia did not immediately comment on the council’s statement. It denies targeting civilians.
Hundreds of civilians are still thought to be trapped in the southern city’s steel plant, and United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said it was vital that humanitarian workers “do all we can to get people out of these hellscapes”.
