The UN said its envoy Robert Serry would return to Kiev on March 6 after he was forced to leave the country on March 5. Serry’s vehicle was reportedly surrounded by armed men in unmarked uniforms who said they would take him to the airport. According to an ITV reporter at the scene, Serry then walked to a cafe, outside which a group of militiamen waited. He then agreed to end his mission and go to the airport.
