MOSCOW, June 02. /ITAR-TASS/. An agreement has been reached with Ukrainian authorities to evacuate the wounded from the city of Sloviansk, Yelizaveta Glinka, Russian Civic Platform member and head of the Fair Aid foundation said  on her return from a humanitarian mission in Ukraine’s eastern Donetsk region.

“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.
