The International Committee of the Red Cross announced the failure of a new attempt today to evacuate civilians from the besieged city of Mariupol in south-eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainians and the Russians accused each other of being responsible for not adhering to a ceasefire to allow the city’s residents to leave, after a similar agreement collapsed on Saturday.

The Mariupol city council, which announced this morning a ceasefire and a new attempt to evacuate civilians, confirmed that this operation had been aborted.

The council said that the Russian bombing made the safe evacuation of civilians impossible.
