It’s taken days of highly tense negotiations, but a group of civilians are now on their way to Ukrainian-controlled territory after an operation led by the United Nations and the Red Cross to evacuate them from the besieged Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol.

President Zelenskyy confirmed the news, saying his office was working to continue the evacuation of other civilians from the plant.
