the government of Ukraine has set for this Wednesday four collection points of civilians in the besieged city Mariupol, to try to evacuate the hundreds of people who are still in this city on the shores of the Sea of ​​Azov.

Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk has announced the establishment of these civilian assembly points on the Telegram network and has warned that their evacuation will take place “if the security situation allows”.

This “Mariupol humanitarian operation”, as the minister has called it, will transfer the evacuees to the Ukrainian-controlled area of ​​Zaporizhzhya, north of Mariupol.

The Ukrainian authorities point out that more than 10,000 residents are still in the ruins of the city without water, electricity or basic products and say Moscow has blocked attempts to bring humanitarian aid to the area.

This Tuesday, the operation focused on the evacuation of civilians from the Azovstal steel factory, which had been besieged for weeks by Russian soldiers and successfully concluded with the departure of 101 people from the factory.

This was the first major rescue operation carried out with the consent of the governments of Ukraine and Russia, with the cooperation of the UN and the support of the Red Cross, releasing a total of 137 people from the Mariupol area, from which come terrifying stories about destruction.

Mariupol, which initially had nearly half a million inhabitants, has been practically devastated by Russian attacks, which troops say have already controlled the entire city except the Azovstal steel mill.

And it is that Russia maintains the siege of the plant and ensures that the Ukrainian troops who remain in the area of ​​​​the Azovstal metallurgical plant are “safely blocked” so that they do not leave the area.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has explained that proposals have been made to the military to “liberate civilians and lay down their weapons in exchange for saving civilians’ lives and giving them decent treatment.” However, he lamented that “these proposals have been ignored,” according to Russian media reports, and accused NATO allies, the European Union and the United States of “continuing to send weapons to Ukraine,” as they did on Wednesday. .

Ukrainian attack on Donetsk

Authorities of the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic on Wednesday condemned the death of one person in an attack by the Ukrainian army on a fuel warehouse in the east town of Makeyevka.

According to information gathered by the Russian news agency TASS, the artillery attack also left two injured, while four fuel tanks were set on fire in the area, without Kiev making a statement.
