Last night, explosions erupted in the Ukrainian capital, and Minister Dmytro Kuleba accused Russian forces of firing cruise missiles at Kyiv during a visit by Guterres and Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov, which he considers barbaric.
The Russian siege of "Azovstal" continues, while the UN Secretary General is trying to ensure the evacuation from the ironworks.
"Russian President Vladimir Putin has already said once that civilians are free to leave the Azovstal steel plant, while militants must lay down their arms," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said last night.
The U.S. Congress approved the draft law which envisages a simpler mechanism for the delivery of defense equipment to Ukraine and the countries of Eastern Europe.
The Indonesian president claims that Putin plans to attend the G20 summit, reports Bloomberg. It should be reminded that Volodymyr Zelensky announced a few days ago that he had received an invitation for the G20 summit.
