Ukraine is striving for a cease-fire agreement in talks with Russian negotiators starting Tuesday in Turkey and sets a “minimum” goal of an improvement in the humanitarian situation that has caused millions to flee their homes in the wake of Moscow’s invasion, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said.

Russia’s siege of the southern city of Mariupol has killed almost 5,000 people, according to the city’s mayor. Ukraine’s military recaptured the town of Irpin west of the capital from Russian troops, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said.
