“I would not speak about any exact date but the operation’s active phase will be over quite soon…In less than a month, perhaps,” Muzhenko said in an interview with the Novoye Vremya (New Times) magazine.

Russian Human Rights Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov has repeatedly demanded the creation of safe corridors for children trapped in the war zone.
