Jun 19, 2024

The evacuation of the population from the border areas of Sumy region has been going on since July last year. This was reported by the head of the Sumy Regional Military Administration, Volodymyr Artyukh, on the We-Ukraine TV channel.


As of today, 28 settlements within the five-kilometer border zone have been completely evacuated, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are managing these territories.

"Evacuation continues in other settlements. For example, an evacuation was announced in Velyka Pysarivka, which was hit in March and April. Also in Seredina-Budska community in Shostka district, where the forced evacuation of children was also announced," said Artyukh.

He also noted that, after assessing the situation, a decision was made to evacuate more remote settlements, such as Bilopillya and Vorozhba. As of June 18, almost 1,800 people have been evacuated there, including more than 200 children.

"Evacuations are being carried out not only within the region but also to other regions of Ukraine, including Lviv, Vinnytsia, Khmelnytsky and Zakarpattia oblasts. This is especially important during the summer vacation, when children are in safe conditions," emphasized the head of the Regional Military Administration.
