Southfront: Earlier, on March 5 and 6, the Ukrainian side used information about humanitarian corridors to provoke and block evacuation during the ceasefire regime, as Russia directly informed the Ukrainian side about the ways and time of evacuation in advance, a day or more before.
Therefore, on the third day, on March 7, Russia changed tactics and reported about humanitarian corridors a few hours before the evacuation. It was reported that today French President Macron guaranteed the security of humanitarian corridors on behalf of the Ukrainian side.
As a result, only dozens of civilians were able to escape from the blockaded cities. Many died under the shelling by Ukrainian nationalist forces.
