Russia’s Defense Ministry says two groups of 46 civilians have fled the area around the Isofestal plant, which is under the control of Ukrainian forces in the city.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a telegram that “after the ceasefire was enforced on April 30 and the human corridor was reopened, two groups left the building adjacent to the Isofestal steel plant.”
On the other hand, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, during her visit to Kyiv, announced her support for Ukraine against Russia’s “aggression”.
“Don’t be oppressed by the oppressors,” Nancy Pelosi told reporters at a press conference in the southern Polish city of Zheshov after returning from Ukraine.
“If they are threatening you, you can’t back down. This is my view. We are here to fight and you can’t bow to a bully,” he said.
Pelosi, who met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on Saturday, is the most senior American figure to visit Ukraine since the start of the war.
“We are coming to thank you for your fight for freedom. We are determined to stay with you until the war is over,” he said.
Pelosi also promised a 33 33 billion (31 billion euro) arms and aid package announced by US President Joe Biden last week.
