Some 170-200 people cross into Ukraine from the Russian Federation every day through the Kolotilovka-Pokrovka humanitarian corridor on the border of the Belgorod and Sumy regions, according to Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Iryna Vereshchuk
She said that a hub has been set up in the Sumy region, where people can receive medical, psychological and humanitarian assistance.
In addition, there are vehicles that take people to Sumy for free, and there is a hub where they can spend the night and leave for Kyiv in the morning. According to Vereshchuk, at 06:47 every day, free evacuation trains depart for Kyiv. People can also take the bus to Kharkiv.
Vereshchuk said that such a checkpoint with Russia operates unilaterally and it would not be possible to leave for Russia through this checkpoint.
"We have closed borders with the aggressor state, and today it is only one humanitarian corridor that is arranged in this way."UKRINFORM
