“During the opening of humanitarian corridors, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will carry out continuous objective monitoring of the evacuation, including from the use of UAVs.

Therefore, we warn that all attempts by the Ukrainian side to once again deceive Russia and the entire civilized world in disrupting the humanitarian operation, allegedly through the fault of the Russian Federation, this time are useless and pointless," the statement says.

The Russian side expects concrete actions from the official Kiev authorities, as well as from the leadership of the cities from which the evacuation is being carried out.

On March 7, the Russian Armed Forces, based on the catastrophic humanitarian situation, as well as in response to the personal request of French President Emmanuel Macron to President Vladimir Putin, declare a silence regime from 10:00 and open humanitarian corridors from Kyiv, Mariupol, Kharkiv and Sumy.

Information about this has been brought to the attention of the specialized structures of the UN, the OSCE, the ICRC and other international organizations.
