Ukraine will send humanitarian aid and try to save the Ukrainian people every day and demands that Russia ensure ‘silence’ on each of these routes.
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in his video address, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Today we again sent humanitarian aid to Mariupol. We will try every day to save our people. I am grateful to every driver who tries to accomplish this difficult mission. I am grateful to the representatives of the church who joined the efforts to protect the humanitarian corridor in Mariupol from shelling. Ukrainian troops, for their part, guarantee complete ‘silence’. […] The Russian side must ensure ‘silence’ on each of these routes. Otherwise, what can Russia guarantee in any negotiations?” Zelensky said.
In his words, ceasefire commitments must be observed along the entire route, so that local residents can receive food, water, medicine and go to a safe area. This refers to Mariupol and other humanitarian corridors prepared by Ukraine, namely from Makariv, Borodianka, Trostianets, Sumy, Poltava, Lebedyn, Konotop, Velyka Pysarivka, Krasnopillia, Polohy, Tokmak, Hostomel, Kozarovychi, Mykulychi and Andriivka, Kyiv Region.
