Seven buses are preparing to take some 500 civilians out of Mariúpol this Sunday


Seven buses will try to leave the besieged Ukrainian city of Mariupol this coming Sunday with some 500 civilians inside while the Red Cross tries again to enter the city with humanitarian aid after the failure of its first incursion on Friday.

The buses are part of a civil initiative announced on Telegram and, if successful, will transport residents to Zaporizhia, while some 100,000 people are still waiting their turn in the siege-ravaged city.

The convoy could take advantage of the special route for the departure of private transport announced this Saturday by the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Irina Vereshchuk.

“Accompanied by the Red Cross, Ukraine will make a new attempt to evacuate people from the besieged city of Mariupol this Sunday. Seven buses will try to approach the city,” he said in a message posted on his Telegram channel.

The International Committee of the Red Cross has been trying all weekend to obtain permission to approach the city, one of the main combat fronts in Ukraine, where approximately 100,000 civilians are still trapped.
