At a press conference, the official specified that the Mariupol-Zaporozhie, Polohy-Zaporozhie, Volnovaja-Pokrovsk, Energodar-Zaporozhie, Izyum-Lozova routes will be opened soon.
Vereschuk stated that other corridors will link the capital and the city of Zhitomir to several towns in the Kiev region.
Vereschuk also noted that new routes are being organized to supply medicine, water and food to the cities of Kherson, Chernigov, Kharkov and other regions of the country where clashes between national forces and Russian troops are taking place.
The deputy head of the Donetsk militia, Eduard Basurin, told the Russia 24 television channel that only 69 people could be evacuated in the last 24 hours through the humanitarian corridor in the city of Mariupol, including 17 children.
“You all already know that it doesn’t work officially,” Basurin said of this corridor, referring to the difficulties that the civilian population encounters in leaving the city because of the Ukrainian nationalists who prevent them from evacuating.
