The absence of queues for evacuation is a sign that it is taking place in an orderly manner. Iryna Vereshchuk, Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine, told journalists during her visit to Bukovyna. She clarified that there are currently no large waves of evacuation expected by our international partners. The key to this is early preparation and systematic implementation.
“The evacuation coordination headquarters was established back in the summer. Since then, we have been offering people various opportunities to move. Including from the de-occupied territories. So that they can live in safe and comfortable conditions. And the fact that there are no evacuation lines at railway stations today is an indication of proper work of the authorities and the public sector. We have mastered the situation and made it planned and controlled,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
She added that an average of about a hundred people leave the dangerous areas of Donetsk region every day, with at least 350 people leaving Kherson region. She once again called on the leaders of regional military administrations and host communities to help IDPs get through the rest of the winter. First of all, to take care of women with children, the sick, and those with limited mobility.
“While visiting different regions, I was convinced that IDPs are treated well everywhere. No one refuses to help, there are opportunities and money. The main thing is to make up your mind to go,” summarized Iryna Vereshchuk.
