Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Iryna Vereshchuk has called on the residents of Kherson to evacuate for the winter period to safer regions of the country.

"The government offers free evacuation to Kryvyi Rih, Mykolaiv and Odesa, with possible further movement to Kirovohrad, Khmelnytskyi or western regions of Ukraine," she wrote on her Telegram channel, Ukrinform reports.

The minister noted that her appeal primarily concerns women with children, the elderly, the sick and representatives of groups with reduced mobility.
