The Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk announced plans for work of humanitarian corridors on March 31.

She clarified that a confirmation was received last night from the International Committee of the Red Cross: the russian federation confirms its readiness to open access for the humanitarian convoy to the city of Mariupol with transit through Berdyansk.

Thus, 45 buses depart for Mariupol. Another 28 have to obtain a permit to pass through the Russian checkpoint in Vasylivka now.

Also, 17 buses have already left the city of Zaporizhzhia.

“We will do everything possible to ensure that buses arrive in Mariupol today and pick up people who have not yet been able to get out of the city” – said the Deputy Prime Minister.

According to her, 2 more humanitarian corridors have also been agreed upon today:

– delivery of humanitarian aid and evacuation of people from the city of Melitopol;

– for the passage of a column of people on their own transport from Energodar to Zaporizhzhia.

“On the way back to the city of Zaporizhzhia, people on their own vehicles will be able to join the humanitarian columns from Mariupol and Melitopol” – Iryna Vereshchuk summed up. “Our military has fully confirmed and guarantees a ceasefire”.
