UPDATE 7:12 PM EDT --

Russian MoD told Mariupol local authorities. "You have the right to make a historic choice - either you side with your people or you side with bandits, otherwise the military tribunal that awaits you is only a little of what you already deserve."

'What I saw, I hope no one will ever see' says Greek diplomat returning from Mariupol. "Mariupol will become part of a list of cities that were completely destroyed by war; I don’t need to name them - they are Guernica, Coventry, Aleppo, Grozny, Leningrad."

Russia has given Ukraine until 5:00 AM local Time to surrender Mariupol,  after which time it says it' will only let the 130,000 remaining civilians leave. The language it uses for Kyiv's forces in Mariupol – "nationalists," "foreign mercenaries," "bandits" – leaves little doubt about what Russia has in store for them.
