In Ukraine, it is said that today there are new efforts to move civilians from the port city of Mariupol to safer areas. Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk told the Telegram messaging app that there will be a new attempt to evacuate women, children and elderly people from the strategic city, which has been under siege by Russian forces for weeks and has been largely bombed and destroyed. .
The Kremlin recently announced that Mariupol had been “liberated” – with the exception of the Azovstal steel plants, the last pocket of resistance in which Ukrainian troops are still stationed. If all goes according to plan, Vereshuk said, the eviction process will begin in Mariupol at noon. Several previous attempts to evacuate civilians from the city failed.
The governor of the eastern Luhansk region, Serhiy Haji, told Telegram that the evacuation train would leave the eastern city of Pokrovsk on Saturday. Residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Donbass can use this train for free. Pilgrims gave the western city of Chub near the borders with Slovakia and Hungary as a destination.
