Around 100 Ukrainian civilians were being evacuated from a ruined steelworks in the city of Mariupol on Sunday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, after the United Nations had confirmed a "safe passage operation" was in progress there, APA reports citing Reuters.

"Grateful to our team! Now they, together with (United Nations), are working on the evacuation of other civilians from the plant," Zelensky tweeted. The evacuees would reach the Ukrainian-controlled city of Zaporizhzhia on Monday, he said.

With fighting stretching along a broad front in southern and eastern Ukraine, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledged continued U.S. support for Ukraine when she met Zelensky in an unannounced visit to Kyiv.
