NOVOSIBIRSK, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Humanitarian corridors should be provided for the evacuation of civilians from south-east Ukraine, and Russian border regions are prepared to receive people, Head of Russian Presidential Administration Sergei Ivanov told reporters on Wednesday, noting that the need for such corridors was very acute.
“There is a growing amount of evidence that Ukrainian authorities hamper the movement of people to Russia. There is a growing number of such cases, and this is alarming. The question of humanitarian corridors is becoming more topical, as civilians, primarily women, elderly people and children, would be able to go to Russia safely,” the Kremlin high-ranking official said.
Ivanov added that he had already talked to the governor of southern Russia’s Rostov Region about refugees from Ukraine. “The whole network of sanatoria and holiday homes was already created there, and it is prepared to receive Ukrainian citizen who need protection and salvation,” the chief of the presidential staff said, adding that similar centers for accommodating refugees would be created in Voronezh, Bryansk and Belgorod Regions.
“Russia will always help fraternal Ukrainian people who turned out to be in a great trouble during the civil war,” Ivanov pledged.
