According to Vereschuk: "Not yet. They continue to play by their rules from 2014."

Background: On 14 March, Russian troops only allowed 160 private vehicles to leave Mariupol. These have now reached Berdyansk.

On the morning of 15 March, Pablo Kyrylenko, Head of the Donetsk Military Administration, reported that the humanitarian corridor for the evacuation of civilians with private vehicles has started its work.
