Crimea is currently in turmoil. There are frequent explosions near the weapons depots and military bases of the occupiers. The Armed Forces perform their work "excellently"! However, life under the sounds of explosions in fear for oneself and loved ones can be called anything but not comfortable.

In order to protect the lives of Ukrainians living in the temporarily occupied Crimea, Ukrzaliznytsia is launching evacuation flights. Oleksandr Kamyshin, the head of the board of the university, announced this.

According to him, Crimeans will be able to evacuate from Zaporizhzhia and Kryvyi Rih railway stations (two free trains) and from Odesa.

On the way, people travelling to territories controlled by Ukraine will be provided with everything they need: hot meals and free medical care. They can also count on financial assistance from Ukrposhta.

From where, and where can you leave?

From Odessa, evacuation trains go to:

    • Kyiv at 21:01;

    • Rakhov at 14:54;

    • Uzhhorod at 15:54;

    • Lviv at 20:45.
