Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, Iryna Vereshchuk, stated in a telethon that on a daily basis, almost 170-200 people cross from Russia to Ukraine through the humanitarian corridor at the border of the Belgorod and Sumy regions, known as the Kolotilivka-Pokrovka corridor.

Vereshchuk mentioned that hubs have been organized in the Sumy region, providing medical, psychological, and humanitarian assistance. Transportation is available to take people to Sumy for free, and there is a hub where they can stay overnight and then travel to Kyiv in the morning. She noted that free evacuation trains depart for Kyiv at 06:47 every day. Additionally, people can also use route buses to travel to Kharkiv.

Vereshchuk emphasized that this crossing point operates unilaterally, allowing people to enter Ukraine from Russia, but not to exit to Russia through this corridor.

"Our borders with the aggressor state are completely closed, and this is currently the only well-established humanitarian corridor. There's also one through Belarus, but with Russia, this is the only one," she added.

Ukrainians evacuating from the occupied territories can return to the controlled territory of Ukraine through the Kolotilivka (Russia) - Pokrovka (Ukraine) crossing point.
