The authorities of Ukraine are already starting voluntary evacuation from the de-occupied territories of the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions. Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Irina Vereshchuk said this, Ukrinform reports on Saturday, November 19.
According to her, first of all, we are talking about vulnerable categories of citizens.
In turn, the head of the Nikolaev Regional State Administration Vitaly Kim noted that in the de-occupied settlements of the region, lists of those wishing to be evacuated are compiled.
A transit point has been created in Nikolaev where people can stay for a week before leaving. From there, they are optionally sent to different regions of Ukraine, where places for living have been prepared for them.
Earlier, the head of the Kherson Regional State Administration Yaroslav Yanushevich called for the evacuation of residents of the liberated territories of the region.
