1 min read

            According to Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk, nine “humanitarian corridors” have been agreed upon to evacuate citizens stranded in Ukrainian towns and cities.

However, she claims in a Facebook post that a safe passage from Mariupol has not been agreed upon with Russia.

She expresses optimism that anyone seeking to flee the city would be able to reach neighbouring Berdyansk, where humanitarian help such as medications is available. She also mentions that 24 buses are waiting to take people.

Previous evacuation attempts from Mariupol have failed because Russian forces continued to bomb the Ukrainian port city despite an agreed-upon temporary truce.
