A civilian disaster is growing in Ukraine as attempts to evacuate residents of besieged port city Mariupol failed for a second day, with President Volodymyr Zelensky denouncing “murder” as he warned of more shelling to come on Monday.
New shelling and attacks have sent soaring numbers of refugees fleeing, sometimes under fire, as the death toll mounts.
“It’s murder, deliberate murder,” Mr Zelensky raged in an address.
“We will not forgive, we will not forget, we will punish everyone who committed atrocities in this war on our land.
“There will be no quiet place on this Earth except the grave.”
