“People in need of help they cannot receive in Sloviansk are taken to Svyatogorsk and Nikolaevka,” Glinka said. “This is literally a corridor for the sick and wounded. This is a chance to evacuate them.”
Glinka said she had not yet discussed the possibility of opening a corridor to send medications to Sloviansk. The issue was under negotiation with the Donetsk region’s health department.
“The health department is probably talking to Ukraine’s National Guard, as far as I understand,” she said.
Earlier on Sunday, five civilians were reported to be wounded as the town came under artillery shelling.
