Ukraine is doing everything to save its citizens and bring them back home
The Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk said that Russia is trying to pave its own so-called “evacuation routes” for Mariupol residents in Russia.
Expectedly, most citizens do not want to “escape” on the territory of the aggressor. As a result, Russian troops are forcibly taking civilians deep into the occupied territories or into Russia itself.
We are talking about tens of thousands of Ukrainians forcibly resettled this way, says Iryna Vereshchuk.
She announced the estimated number of Ukrainians forcibly deported by Russia – almost 40,000.
According to a similar scheme, the occupier is operating in the temporarily occupied part of the Kyiv region, trying to forcibly deport our people to Belarus.
