Russia announces partial ceasefire in Ukraine

International Desk
Russia and Ukraine have agreed on a temporary ceasefire in two southern cities to allow civilians to evacuate.

It's the first ceasefire of any kind since Russia invaded Ukraine ten days ago.

While it's good news for the civilians in Mariupol and Volnovakha who wish to leave, these two cities are the only places covered by the temporary agreement.

In the meantime, cities across the country continue to be bombarded.

The evacuation is due to begin in just under an hour, at 11:00 local time (09:00 GMT).
