In a message occasioned by Orthodox Easter, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says that the „evil” will not be able to destroy Ukraine and prays for a good and happy life for all Ukrainian children, Reuters reports. Presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak stated that Russian forces kept bombarding the port city of Mariupol and urged Moscow to accept a „real Easter truce”. He also proposed a „special negotiating session to exchange soldiers” , a proposal ignored by Moscow. The United Nations also called for an „immediate” ceasefire in Mariupol on Sunday, to allow the evacuation of about 100,000 civilians still stranded in the Russian port city controlled almost entirely by the Russian military, FP reports. The city at the Azov Sea has been besieged by the Russian army since early March, and especially the Azovstal steelworks, as the last stronghold of resistance for the Ukrainian fighters.
