Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk apologised to residents of Mariupol for failed evacuation efforts from the besieged port city.

In a Telegram post, she said "everything is very complicated, chaotic, slow and, of course, dishonest" from the Russian side. Ukrainian authorities have been trying to evacuate people from Mariupol throughout the conflict, and humanitarian efforts were often called off due to a lack of Russian cooperation, according to Ukraine.

Vereshchuk said shelling near one of the evacuation collection points in the city forced Ukraine to close the humanitarian corridor to Zaporizhzhia. She added: "we will not give up trying to get you out of there! Hold on!".

As we've been reporting, Ukraine hoped to evacuate 6,000 people on Wednesday but around 80 were able to make it to Ukraine-controlled Zaporizhzhia.Ukrainian officials estimate that 100,000 people are currently trapped in Mariupol.
