Since the beginning of hostilities in Ukraine, Ukrzaliznytsia has evacuated more than 2 million people, Deputy Head of the President's Office Kyrylo Tymoshenko said live on the information marathon.
"This is really a big figure, and many thanks to Ukrzaliznytsia, which carries people to safe regions," he said.
According to Tymoshenko, about 150,000 more people were taken by buses from the cities where the most active hostilities are taking place.
"This applies to Luhansk region, Donetsk region, Sumy region, Kyiv and Zaporizhia regions. For all the time, 26 humanitarian corridors have been worked out," he specified.
Separately, Tymoshenko dwelled on the issue of evacuation from Mariupol.
"We have been trying to get to Mariupol for the fourth day already - now a humanitarian convoy is standing 60 km from the city, but they are not letting it through," he said, adding that on Monday, March 14, it was possible to ensure that people were able to leave at least in private cars.
Those who managed to evacuate from Mariupol were accepted in Zaporizhia region.
