Thousands evacuated from the northeastern town of Sumy have arrived to safety under new ceasefire arrangements, allowing for the evacuation of besieged areas.

However, Ukraine has accused Russia of violating the plan near Mariupol by shelling the planned route.

The Russian army has offered a new ceasefire on Wednesday morning to allow for further evacuations along the "humanitarian corridors".

Meanwhile, the UN says two million refugees have now fled Ukraine since Russia's invasion.
