Moscow has called on the UN Security Council to urgently discuss the case, which it claims is a provocation by Ukrainian authorities.

Ukrainian authorities have managed to evacuate nearly 3,000 people from Russian-besieged Mariupol and Luhansk regions yesterday, Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk said.

Meanwhile, the British Ministry of Defense said that control of Mariupol was almost certainly the main goal of the Russian invasion.
