Some of them even bring their pets along. We would like to remind you that the Donetsk oblast Evacuation Coordination Staff is headed by Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk.”

  • The Ukrainian government has introduced mandatory evacuation of residents of Ukrainian-controlled parts of Donetsk Oblast ahead of the colder months. Vereshchuk has said that the government fears there might be no heat, gas, or power in Donetsk Oblast in winter because the Russian forces are deliberately targeting essential infrastructure.
  • The evacuees will receive a monthly payment of 2,000-3,000 hryvnias [approximately $54-80 – ed.].
