The situation in Polohy district has worsened, there are daily attacks. The enemy launched a massive offensive, but our defenders hold the defense,” Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration Oleksandr Starukh said during the nationwide telethon, Ukrinform reports.
He noted that an evacuation plan had been drafted, according to which women and children had been taken out of Huliaypole, Orikhiv, Komyshuvakha and other settlements. The Administration notes that some residents refused to evacuate to safer areas and decided to stay in their homes, putting themselves in danger.
"Unfortunately, not everyone understands, some elderly people stayed at home, it is much harder to evacuate them. We recommend that women, children, and the elderly should leave the line of contact for the regional center,” the Head of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Military Administration urged citizens.
