Parents took baby Kirill to hospital after Russians opened fire on them in the besieged city of Mariupol on Friday.

The chilling photos come as Wladimir PutinJust hours after US forces agreed to allow civilians to flee two besieged cities, they broke a ceasefire.

Russian forces had agreed to halt their bombardment of the strategic port of Mariupol to the southeast and the eastern city of Volnovakha.

And yet, about an hour later, their troops opened fire again – halting the evacuation and people fleeing to Mariupol for shelter.

It comes after a week of vicious bloodshed that saw thousands of civilians slaughtered at the hands Putin’s powers.

The truce began at 9am UK time – and offered the besieged people of Ukraine.

And even that was too long for shameless and bloodthirsty Russians.

Ukrainian officials had hoped to evacuate about 200,000 civilians from the city before the bombing resumed.

“The Russians keep bombing us and using artillery. It’s crazy,” said Mariupol Deputy Mayor Serhiy Orlov.

“There is no truce in Mariupol and there is no truce along the entire route. Our civilians are ready to flee, but they cannot escape under fire.”

Civilians have to take the route from Mariupol via Rozivka to Zaporizhia – but fighting continues along the alleged “humanitarian corridor”.

The Russians, meanwhile, accused Ukrainian “nationalists” of preventing the evacuation.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy this morning confirmed the new humanitarian corridors – but urged those who could to “keep fighting”.

And in a bitter speech on Friday night, he again called for a no-fly zone and told NATO that “all the people who die that day.”

Mariupol was one of the most brutalized wartime cities as the Russians blocked it, cutting off food, water, heating and transport in the depths of the water.

It has been compared to the Nazi blockade of Leningrad in World War II.


It comes as:


Citizens had just five hours to leave – with a window of 9am to 2pm UK time – and there will be 50 specially arranged buses.

Mariupol Mayor Vadim Boychenko helped his people come under “constant, ruthless fire” from the Russians.

And there are no trains because the Russians have destroyed the railways, he said – adding he also fears information could be difficult to get to residents because of the destroyed communications.

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has reported a dire situation in the city, with scores of staff injured and water collected from rain and snow.

Several supermarkets supplying groceries to desperate civilians have been hit by rockets – and there is no cell phone connection, according to MSF.

Putin’s invasion has drawn condemnations and heavy sanctions from Western nations, balancing the Kremlin’s punishment with fears of a dangerous escalation.

Moscow has captured two key cities, Berdyansk and Kherson on Ukraine’s southern Black Sea coast, in its 10-day invasion.

And today there were mass protests in Kherson as citizens came out in droves waving the flag of Ukraine.

In an incredible moment, a man climbed aboard a Russian tank to wave the yellow and blue banner, while other footage showed protesters confronting heavily armed Russian soldiers.

But capturing Mariupol, a city of about 450,000 on the Sea of ​​Azov, would be a greater price for Russian forces, as it would deal a severe blow to Ukraine’s naval access and link troops from annexed Crimea and Donbass.

Peace talks are expected to resume today – but Ukraine remains defiant as civilians prepare to fight back amid Russia’s grueling advance.

And according to civilians fleeing Volnovakha — the other city was granted a brief moment of peace in the truce — the city was almost completely destroyed.

The eastern city was bombarded by artillery and attacked by pro-Russian separatists from the very first day of the invasion.

“The attacks lasted all night and all day. We told the kids it was thunder,” said one resident, Viktor.

“We can never return to Volnovakha. Everything is ruined and nothing is left.”

The nefarious dictator Putin had denied bombing Ukrainian civilians despite overwhelming evidence showing the horrors of his invasion.

Children have been killed in its indiscriminate bombing, which is said to have used weapons such as cluster munitions and vacuum bombs.

In a phone call with Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the Russian tyrant insisted that the information about the bombing was falsified.

The Kremlin later released a statement saying, “The alleged ongoing airstrikes on Kyiv and other major cities are gross propaganda fabrications.”

Delusional Putin said he was open to talks with Ukraine, but only on condition that “all Russian demands are met”.

Vlad’s bizarre denial comes as he claims war he unleashed was a “success”although the Russian army suffered heavy casualties.

The reported temporary ceasefire in Ukraine is welcome, but it is only a “small step,” said UK Treasury Secretary John Glen.

Speaking on the BBC Breakfast, Mr Glen said: “But (the) bigger picture is that Putin’s aggression shows little sign of abating and the developing humanitarian crises are appalling and entirely his responsibility.

“The number of cities that appear to be under threat remains high, and the level of aggression and the nature of the shelling are becoming more desperate and indiscriminate by the day.”

And this comes as a US official said Russia is preparing to send 1,000 additional mercenaries to Ukraine in the near future.

Meanwhile, Russia yesterday took control of Europe’s largest power plant in Zaporizhia – after a fight that set the plant on fire.

Putin has been condemned internationally for his actions that could have triggered the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.

Russia has found that its invasion was mortified by logistical problems – with reports of tanks running out of fuel and soldiers running out of supplies.

Putin is said to have thought he could overrun Ukraine in just 48 hours – and his troops thought they would be greeted as heroes.

But instead they are bogged down against a staunch resistance.

Putin is also becoming increasingly isolated in the world as Russia feels the crushing weight of Western sanctions.

However, Moscow seems increasingly frustrated – and there are fears that Putin may resort to increasingly brutal tactics as the war progresses.

It is believed that Kyiv remains the main target of the Russians.

And a huge convoy of armored vehicles lurks nearby, apparently preparing for a protracted siege.

The so-called “Convoy of Death” is puzzling, however, as it hasn’t made any significant progress in days.

Russian forces are believed to be becoming increasingly demoralized with captured troops seen weep for their mothers.

Despite its defiance, Ukraine faces a humanitarian crisis with more than a million refugees fleeing the devastating war.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy – who has remained in a bunker in Ukraine to dodge assassination attempts – has called for a face-to-face meeting with Putin to try to stop the demolitions.
