The forced evacuation of 239 children to safer regions of Ukraine has been announced in seven settlements in Donetsk Oblast.

The forced evacuation of children will be carried out in the city of Zalizne, the villages of New-York and Pivnichne, and the villages of Kostiantynivka, Ivanopillia, Mykolaivka, and Podilske.

The relevant decision was made by the Donetsk Oblast Military Administration because the security situation in the region "remains critical", reports the Ministry of Reintegration. 


"Today, under the chairmanship of Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk, a meeting of the Coordination Headquarters for the mandatory evacuation of the population under martial law was held. The members of the Coordination Headquarters unanimously supported the decision of the Donetsk Oblast Military Administration," the department said.
