Residents of border communities in Sumy Region are actively returning to their homes despite Russian shelling. The conditions in their temporary residences are highly conducive to what is termed «negative evacuation».

Journalist and co-founder of Kordon.media, Alyona Yatsyna, discussed this on Hromadske Radio. According to her estimates, the civilian evacuation in Sumy region is experiencing a kind of reverse success.

«In reality, people are returning, they are returning everywhere, or they are not leaving at all. We are observing that in our two border communities – Velykopysarivska and Seredyno-Budska – the forced evacuation of children is continuing in a negative manner, meaning that more children are being added to the communities. No one is taking them anywhere. This evacuation has been ongoing for three months now», — said Alyona Yatsyna.

It can be noted that especially those citizens who did not plan to leave for long are now returning.

«Now people are coming back… They were taken by bus to Sumy and settled in temporary residences. I’m sorry, but conditions there are terrible. This is my personal opinion, my personal assessment. Yes, it’s better to live where there’s no shooting and it’s quiet, but it’s impossible to live there. I mean, the conditions are truly temporary. If a person doesn’t know where to go, where to live, what to do, then yes, this is why people return», — explained the Hromadske Radio interviewee.

Earlier, Alyona Yatsyna emphasized that the lack of prospects in a new place did not encourage people to evacuate from the Sumy region.
