Residents of villages in Donetsk Region located in the combat zone often refuse to be evacuated until the last minute, but after being injured, they still seek help. However, the situation at the front is such that evacuation teams cannot always reach the victims.

A police officer of the White Angel crew, Police Major Gennadiy Yudin, told Hromadske Radio about this.

He confirmed that the Russian occupiers periodically attack evacuation vehicles with drones, along with civilians trying to leave the frontline settlements. There are cases when the occupiers drop ammunition while medical assistance is being provided to civilians.

«Our crew is directly working in the Avdiivka sector. There are also five other crews. These are Kurakhove, Maryinka, Lyman, Krasnohorivka, Velykonovosilkove, and Toretsk directions. Directly in our direction, these are the villages that are on the front line. These are the Ocheretyn community and the Hrodivka community. The biggest evacuation is currently underway from there», — said Gennadiy Yudin.

According to his estimates, the situation in Novoselivka Persha village remains critical, with about 60 people still staying there. The situation in the nearby village of Sokol, where about 12 people are staying, is no less difficult.

«Unfortunately, we cannot go to Sokol anymore. We had requests for evacuation, but we coordinated with the military who are in the area, and just two weeks ago we evacuated people from there; we evacuated five local residents.

It is also extremely difficult to get to Novoselivka I. All the roads are under constant shelling. It’s getting harder and harder to get there», — said the police officer.

He stated that people mostly express a desire to evacuate when they or their loved ones come under fire or are wounded. Before that, most refuse to leave.
