Verbatim: "513 people from the towns of Rubizhne, Lysychansk, Severodonetsk and Popasna have been evacuated through the humanitarian corridor from Rubizhne to Bakhmut town."

"We have also managed to release our people from storage facilities under the ruins of the bread factory and from the storeroom of school №5."

"Women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities have been rescued thanks to the heroism of Luhansk Oblast police patrols. They saved all the people despite the aggressors violating the ceasefire. Otherwise, 155 Ukrainian citizens would simply have been doomed to a horrible death in an underground shelter."


Details: In total, 2 humanitarian corridors in Donetsk and Luhansk regions were open on Sunday. A total of 1,100 people have been evacuated, according to the Deputy Prime Minister.

In one day, 586 people travelled from Mariupol to Zaporizhzhia in their private vehicles in the Donetsk region.

15 buses arrived at the checkpoint at the entrance route to Berdyansk town.  On Monday morning they should arrive at the meeting place for evacuation - Melitopolske Shosse Street, 27 - near the city sports complex.

Ukrainian authorities plan to continue their work on the Mariupol route and to launch corridors to the Sumy region on Monday, as well as continuing to work on agreements to open additional routes for humanitarian corridors, Iryna Vereshchuk added.
