Russia's defense ministry issued a new proposal to Ukrainian troops holed up in the Azovstal steel plant to lay down their weapons on Wednesday, adding that not a single Ukrainian soldier had accepted that same offer on Tuesday. Russian troops will observe a ceasefire in the area of Azovstal while the proposal is in effect starting from 1400 Moscow time (1100 GMT) on April 20, the ministry added in a statement.

A Ukrainian presidential adviser said on Tuesday that Russia was hitting Azovstal, the main remaining Ukrainian stronghold in the city of Mariupol, with bunker-buster bombs. "The world watches the murder of children online and remains silent," adviser Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on Twitter. Mariupol's city council said on Monday that over 1,000 civilians were sheltering in basement premises underneath the Azovstal plant. Russia has denied targeting civilians.
