Ukraine demands from Russia an urgent humanitarian corridor from the Azovstal plant in Mariupol, said Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for the Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereschuk.


“There are about 1,000 civilians and 500 wounded military personnel there. We need to get them all out of Azovstal today!” Vereschuk wrote on her Telegram channel.


“I urge world leaders and the international community to focus their efforts now exactly on Azovstal. Now this is a key point and a key moment for humanitarian efforts,” she added.
