A humanitarian corridor for the city of Sumy should be opened today to evacuate people along the Sumy-Holubivka-Lokhvytsia-Lubny-Poltava route.

Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk said this at a briefing on Tuesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Today [March 8] a humanitarian corridor for the city of Sumy should be opened. This fact was officially approved by the Russian Ministry of Defense in a letter to the International Committee of the Red Cross. In other words, both the Red Cross and we, as the party with which the opening of the humanitarian corridor was agreed, have documentary evidence," Vereshchuk said.

She said that the real ceasefire within the route of the humanitarian corridor will be the basis for informing the public about the possibility of evacuation.

According to her, it was agreed that at 10 o'clock in the morning the first column should start moving from the city of Sumy. The column will be followed by civilians in their own vehicles.

Vereshchuk stressed that no other evacuation routes had been agreed.
