Ukrainians queue for food in besieged Mariupol

While numerous attempts to create corridors and agree to temporary ceasefires that allow Ukrainians to evacuate Mariupol have failed, some aid and supplies reached part of the city controlled by Russian forces yesterday.

More than 100 people waited patiently in line for boxes of food and humanitarian supplies being distributed from a lorry.

A younger mother of two said she had received bread and food, adding that she felt lucky to reach the supplies in time. “You don’t always find out… and then you arrive too late,” she said.

“It’s difficult to leave by bus now. We hope the number of people trying to get out will go down and it will get easier for us to leave,” she added.
