russia has blocked 7 evacuation buses from Mariupol

On Monday, 3,376 people were evacuated through humanitarian corridors, but the Russians violated the agreement.

This was announced by the Head of the Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, Iryna Vereshchuk.

In particular, 2,405 people traveled to Zaporizhzhia by humanitarian transport from Mariupol and Berdiansk.

1,553 of them are from Mariupol.

Also, 805 people arrived from the cities of the Zaporizhzhia region: Polohy, Vasylivka, Berdiansk, and Melitopol.

"A convoy of 7 buses to evacuate people from Mariupol, which was moving along the agreed route, accompanied by a delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross, is still blocked in Manhush. The occupying forces continue to break agreements with us and their own promises," Vereshchuk said.

971 people were evacuated from the cities of Lysychansk, Severodonetsk, Rubizhne, Kreminna, and Hirske in the Luhansk region.

Despite the agreement, Russian occupation forces systematically violated the ceasefire during the evacuation in the Luhansk region.

"We are negotiating and despite the opposition of the Russian Federation to the work of humanitarian corridors, we will not stop trying to save our people," Vereshchuk said.
