Safe Corridor Open In Ukraine As Civilians Flee

At least one safe corridor is open in Ukraine on Tuesday to allow civilians to evacuate.

It’s one of five routes promised by Russia, but it’s unclear if the ceasefire in the area will hold.

The UN says Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is quickly becoming a humanitarian crisis.

They say at least 1,200 civilians have died in the two weeks of fighting, and 2 million people have now fled the country.

A third round of talks between the two countries on Monday made little progress.

The Pentagon says Russia has become more reliant on missile attacks and air strikes, but they’ve also stepped up their attack on cities like Kharkiv and Mariupol.

The Pentagon also says they’re sending another 500 troops to Europe to bolster NATO’s eastern flank.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky appeared in a new video recording and is still promising to remain in Ukraine until the war is over.

The UN estimates the conflict could eventually force as many as 5 million Ukrainians from their homes.
