Vereshchuk and Arestovich urged residents of Kherson to evacuate to safer regions
Vereshchuk promises that IDPs from Kherson will be provided with free accommodation in shelters, humanitarian aid, food, and medical support.
Residents of Kherson are better off evacuating for the winter to safer regions of Ukraine. This is especially true for vulnerable citizens: women with children, the elderly, the sick, and people with limited mobility.
This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Reintegration of the Occupied Territories Irina Vereshchuk.
The government offers free evacuation to Kryvyi Rih, Mykolaiv and Odessa, with possible subsequent transfer to Kirovograd, Khmelnytsky or the western regions of Ukraine.
Vereshchuk promises that IDPs from Kherson will be provided with free accommodation in shelters, humanitarian aid, food, and medical support. Assistance will also be provided in issuing an IDP certificate and appropriate financial aid from the state and international organizations.
Aleksey Arestovich, the adviser to the President's Office, explained that Kherson has now become a front-line city. In addition, the invaders destroyed the entire energy infrastructure there.
"Mine danger, lack of light and heat. Therefore, it is easier for people to spend the winter in other places. In the absence of water, light, and heat, it is not the best decision to stay in Kherson," Arestovich said.
- Recall that earlier the head of the Kherson MA, Yaroslav Yanushevich, called on residents of the liberated territories of the region to evacuate due to the high probability of enemy shelling.
- Military expert Oleg Zhdanov advised residents of the right-bank Kherson region, especially the coastal zone, where Russian artillery can reach, to evacuate.
- Irina Vereshchuk has previously stated that the state bears all the costs associated with this.
