    The summary of the day – people saved from Mariupol, new sanctions, high school final exams [VIDEO]

    Ukraine is preparing another evacuation of civilians from the almost completely Russian-controlled port city of Mariupol in the southeast of the country. Russian troops yesterday launched a massive attack on the Azovstal complex site. There may still be wounded men, women and children on the site.

Russia also stepped up strikes on targets in western Ukraine, saying it was disrupting Western arms deliveries.



    Nearly 290,000 pupils of general secondary schools, technical secondary schools and industry secondary schools took their final exams this year.
