Believe me.\u0022\r\n\r\nZelenskyy\u0026#039;s comments came amid reports that Ukraine and Russia have agreed to create corridors to enable the safe passage of civilians and humanitarian supplies during temporary, localized ceasefires.\r\n\r\nWhile lamenting that the second round of talks between Kyiv and Moscow ended Thursday without a resolution to the conflict, Zelenskyy adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said that the two sides had reached an understanding on the provision of \u0022humanitarian corridors\u0022 to facilitate the evacuation of civilians and delivery of food, water, and medicine.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAccording to\u0026nbsp;Podolyak, both sides agreed to observe limited ceasefires: \u0022That is, not everywhere, but only in those places where the humanitarian corridors themselves will be located, it will be possible to cease fire for the duration of the evacuation.\u0022\r\n\r\nMeanwhile, Russia\u0026#039;s main negotiator,\u0026nbsp;Vladimir Medinsky, said that \u0022the main\u0026nbsp;question that we decided on today was the issue of saving people, civilians, who are in the zone of military clashes.\u0022\r\n\r\n\u0022Russia calls on civilians who find themselves in this situation, if military actions continue, to use these humanitarian corridors,\u0022 added the former culture minister.\r\n\r\nAccording to Leonid Slutsky, a Russian lawmaker and participant in the negotiations, Thursday\u0026#039;s agreement will be \u0022implemented in the near future.\u0022\r\n\r\nSince Putin ordered his full-scale invasion of Ukraine last week, Russia has hit civilian infrastructure in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, and other cities with airstrikes and artillery shells, killing hundreds. As the war enters its second week, more than one million refugees have already been displaced to neighboring countries, according to\u0026nbsp;the United Nations.\r\n\r\nA third round of talks between the Ukrainian and Russian delegations is reportedly set to take place early next week.
