In Mariupol, Ukrainian fighters are able to leave the Azov steelworks after weeks of siege. Now a prisoner exchange is planned.

In the meantime, there have been a number of deaths in Russian attacks in eastern Ukraine.

The situation at a glance:

On Tuesday, the Finnish parliament will continue to debate whether to join NATO. It is unclear whether a decision will be made. In addition, Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö is traveling to Sweden at the invitation of King Carl XVI. Gustaf on a two-day state visit to Stockholm. Against the background of the decisions of both countries to apply for NATO membership, the meeting should deal, among other things, with the common defense policy.
