Third round of Ukraine-Russia talks underway in Belarus

New Delhi/IBNS: The third round of Ukraine-Russia talks has started in Belarus, hours after the Russian plan of a humanitarian corridor from three of Ukraine cities to Russia and Belarus fell.

Under the Russian evacuation plan, the corridor from Kyiv would lead to Belarus, while civilians from Kharkiv would be permitted to go only to Russia, the Russian state-owned RIA News agency said. Russia also said it would begin airlifts to take Ukrainians from Kyiv to Russia. 

A spokesperson for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, however, called the move "completely immoral" and said Russia was trying to "use people's suffering to create a television picture".

"They are citizens of Ukraine, they should have the right to evacuate to the territory of Ukraine," news agency Reuters quoted the spokesperson as saying. 
"This is one of the problems that is causing the humanitarian corridors to break down. They seem to agree to them, but they themselves want to supply humanitarian aid for a picture on TV, and want the corridors to lead in their direction," he added.

Russia announced a ceasefire in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Mariupol and Sumy from 12.30 pm IST on Monday. But it has fallen through now.

The third round of talks between Russia and Ukraine will focus about ending the war will.

Last week, both sides agreed to open humanitarian corridors to allow civilians out of some combat zones, but none of them has worked so far.
