The Ukrainian authorities announced this Thursday agreements to open ten humanitarian corridors to allow the evacuation of civilians, within the framework of the war unleashed on February 24 by order of the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin.
Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, Irina Vereshchuk, has indicated that among the agreed corridors is one from the city of Mariupol, located in the southeast of the country and surrounded by Russian forces for weeks, according to the Ukrinform news agency.
Thus, he stressed that there will also be corridors connecting the towns of Tokmak, Energodar and Melitopol with Zaporizhia, while others will lead from Severodonetsk, Lisichansk, Popasna and Rubizhne to Bakhmut. Finally, he has said that the evacuations in the Luhansk region will take place as long as the Russian forces abide by the ceasefire.
