Ukraine established three humanitarian corridors on Wednesday, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said on Telegram.

   Two corridors were set up to allow Ukrainian civilians to flee the cities of Melitopol and Energodar in the southern Zaporizhzhia region, which were captured by Russia’s forces, Vereshchuk said.

   Another humanitarian route was established in the eastern Donetsk region to evacuate people from the city of Mariupol, where active hostilities are underway, she added.

   Last Thursday Ukraine established seven humanitarian corridors, following nine corridors the previous day, according to Ukraine’s government-run Ukrinform news agency.
