Quote Arakhamia "In the last day we managed to evacuate more than 40,000 women and children.  We were hoping for 100,000, but unfortunately it was not possible"


Details: According to Arakhamiya, the most problematic evacuations were from Mariupol, Kharkiv and Kyiv. Additionally, the National Police Service has stated that several thousand people have been evacuated from the occupied Bucha region in Kyiv.

Quote: "Today, the 9th of March, with the combined efforts of Kyiv Police, The Red Cross, DSNS (State Emergency Service of Ukraine), and the local administrative services, more than 3,000individuals were evacuated from the occupied Irpin and Vorzel. Among those were several hundred children, seniors, as well as seriously ill citizens."

Additional Details:  The evacuation operation in Bucha involved close to a hundred buses, as well as ambulances.  On the outskirts of Kyiv, where an emergency camp was set up, those evacuated were provided warm food and tea. Medical assistance, as well as further relocation directions, were provided.

"Unfortunately the humanitarian convoy that today travelled from Bucha, Hostomel, and Borodyanka was stopped by the occupying forces. Because of this, some people, at great risk to their own lives, were forced to travel from Bucha to Irpin to join a different convoy of locals," the police service informs.

"People who arrived with the convoy of evacuees shared stories of rampant theft, firearm executions, intimidation, as well as looting in those towns captured by Russian occupiers. We hope that we will be able to relieve our citizens from this degrading siege," said Kyiv chief of police Andrii Nebytov.
