Their work was reported at a meeting on the evacuation of Sumy region chaired by Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk.
The participants focused on the issue of the creation of a route to the cities of Dnipro, Kharkiv, and Poltava. In addition to train services, special evacuation buses will also be in operation. Special vehicles are also provided for the transport of people with reduced mobility.
Iryna Vereshchuk thanked mobile operators for providing free mobile phone packages to evacuees.
“Thanks to our joint work, we have been able to identify the need and the people will be able to get in touch with their families,” the official said.
Remember that the Kolotylivka (russia) – Pokrovka (Ukraine) border crossing on the Belgorod and Sumy regions reopened on 5 August. Since then, over 10,000 Ukrainian citizens have returned to Ukraine through this checkpoint.
There, Ukrainian people can get free help for their psychological, legal, and humanitarian needs, stay overnight, and travel to other places within Ukraine.
