Pavlo Kyrylenko, the head of the Donetsk Regional State Administration, said that 79 Mariupol residents had traveled by bus from Mariupol to Zaporizhia.
“For the first time since the blockade of Mariupol, the russian occupation forces managed to evacuate local residents in an organized manner and take them to a safe place. Earlier, the Russians broke all agreements and left the city only by private transport,” Kirilenko said. He also added that people left Mariupol by four buses and it is much less than agreed. “We continue to make efforts so that all Mariupol residents can leave for the free territory of Ukraine. This is one of the priority tasks of the entire state leadership,” said the head of the Donetsk OVA.
For his part, the head of the Zaporizhia Regional State Administration Oleksandr Starukh confirmed the information about the arrival of people from Mariupol. “People from Mariupol have arrived. They have escaped from hell, there are no other words,” said Starukh.
Russia is undermining humanitarian corridors from besieged Mariupol, which were pledged by russia during talks with Ukraine.

Iryna Vereshchuk added that the russian occupation forces had blocked mobile communications the day before, which made it extremely difficult for the local population to learn about the evacuation from the city of Azov. At that time, the agreement between the Ukrainian and Russian parties had already been agreed.
Iryna Vereshchuk noted that the actions of the russian side are a crime, as the work of the rubber corridors was agreed in accordance with international humanitarian law, and Russia does not allow it to be implemented.
