A few dozen more civilians were able to leave Mariupol, surrounded by troops of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), and leave the combat zone. This was stated by the Deputy Head of the People’s Militia Department of the DPR Eduard Basurin, reports TASS.
According to the military, the humanitarian situation in the city remains difficult, and the Ukrainian security forces continue to block the work of humanitarian corridors. “Over the past 24 hours, people were able to get out of there on their own — 42 people, including six children,” said the representative of the DPR.
He added that at least five civilians had been wounded by the Ukrainian military over the past 24 hours. “They are all from the territories that we liberated,” Basurin stressed.
Earlier it became known that Russia and Ukraine agreed to extend the operation of the humanitarian corridor from Sumy to Poltava for the evacuation of citizens and the delivery of essential products. The silence mode will be in effect until 22:00 Moscow time on March 9.
