Mariupol residents are waiting for evacuation
According to the Mariupol City Council, there are still about 100,000 people left in the city. They need to be evacuated, but the Russian occupiers violate all agreements on the “silence regime” and practically do not stop firing, which makes it impossible for the safe removal of civilians from the city.
100 thousand people waiting to be given a chance to survive. We must join forces, not give up and continue to evacuate civilians. Organizing a mission is very difficult, but we must do everything possible together with the international community. – said the mayor of Mariupol Vadym Boychenko.
He also thanked Irina Vereshchuk, Volodymyr Zelensky, the UN and the Red Cross for doing everything possible and impossible to save people from the blocked city. The enemy is constantly inflicting heavy blows on Mariupol, so the situation in the city is deteriorating every day.
