RUSSIA: Russian forces opened a humanitarian passage for Ukrainian troops who agreed to lay down their arms and evacuate the besieged city of Mariupol on Tuesday, according to Moscow.

In retaliation for similar steps taken against Moscow’s foreign envoys over the Kremlin’s military campaign in Ukraine, Russia expelled 36 diplomats from two European nations on Tuesday.

On April 19, Russia demanded that Ukrainian soldiers “immediately” lay down their arms and announced a fresh deadline for the defenders of Mariupol, the beleaguered port city.

Regardless of worldwide volatility, China informed Russia that it will continue to increase “strategic coordination” with it, according to a statement released by the foreign ministry on Tuesday.

For the third day in a row, Ukraine stated there would be no humanitarian corridors to evacuate residents in the nation due to a lack of agreement with Russia.

“U.S. President Joe Biden will on Tuesday hold a call with allies to discuss the Ukraine crisis, including how to coordinate on holding Russia accountable,” the White House said.

US media claimed Tuesday that the US is ready to approve another $800 million in military aid for Ukraine, less than a week after unveiling a package for the same amount.

On Tuesday, Russia launched an attack on cities and towns along a hundreds-of-mile-long boomerang-shaped front and poured more troops into Ukraine in a potentially crucial battle for control of the country’s eastern industrial heartland of coal mines and factories.

If successful, the Russian operation in the Donbas would effectively split Ukraine in half, handing President Vladimir Putin a much-needed triumph after Moscow’s forces failed to storm the capital, Kyiv, and suffered higher-than-expected fatalities over two months into the conflict.
