Ukrainian Armed Forces: humanitarian corridors operate in the area of the military operation in the east of the country
"At the roadblocks, people already inspect private cars and buses, as well as pedestrians who leave the area of operation," he said.
According to him, "if security officials do not have suspicions of involvement of people in terrorist groups, transport is escorted to a safe place." “Special attention is paid to men during inspections,” Lebed specified.
10 June, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko instructed security officials to create a humanitarian corridor for the evacuation of civilians from the zone of military operations in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
No humanitarian corridors in the area of the military operation of the Ukrainian security forces have not yet been created. As stated today by ITAR-TASS Chairman of the Supreme Council of the proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin, the statement about the creation of such corridors is “the next populism” of the Kiev authorities.
“There is no evidence (creation of humanitarian corridors - ITAR-TASS commentary). It’s wrong to talk about such corridors in the context of ongoing hostilities,” Pushilin said, commenting on statements by representatives of the Ukrainian Armed Forces that a humanitarian corridor allegedly began to operate . "Such statements are another populism," he added.
In addition, according to Pushilin, there is information about the offensive of the security forces in the direction of Donetsk through the town of Karlovka.
