According to Ukrinform, the Ministry for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine reported this in Telegram.

"Ukrainians evacuating from the temporarily occupied territories can return to the government-controlled territory of Ukraine through the Kolotylivka (Russian Federation) - Pokrovka (Ukraine) checkpoint. As of yesterday, the crossing point on the border of Belgorod and Sumy regions has resumed its work," the statement reads.

A volunteer humanitarian center operates on the Ukrainian border, where all Ukrainians can receive free psychological, legal, and humanitarian assistance, as well as spend the night and get to Sumy or other cities of Ukraine.
