More than 4,600 people were evacuated Thursday from Ukraine’s embattled cities, with about two-thirds of them departing from the southern part of the country via humanitarian corridors, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said on social media. Roughly 1,200 of them are from Mariupol, the devastated port city that has endured weeks of Russian attacks.
About 1,400 people left towns in eastern Ukraine, she added. Ukrainian and Western officials have said Russia is shifting the focus of its invasion to that region.
