Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, on President Vladimir Putin’s order.
Nearly 1.5 million people have fled the war-hit country, while hundreds of civilians have died, including an Indian student.
Russia, on Monday, declared a temporary ceasefire in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Sumy and Mariupol to allow civilians a safe passage out of Ukraine.
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has urged the West to put more sanctions in place against Russia.
Zelensky criticised Western leaders for not responding to Russian Defense ministry’s announcement that it would strike Ukraine’s military-industrial complex.
“I didn’t hear even a single world leader react to this,” Zelensky said. “The audacity of the aggressor is a clear signal to the West that the sanctions imposed on Russia are not sufficient.”
