On March 2, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the complete encirclement of Mariupol, the largest city on the coast of the Sea of ​​Azov. Since then, Ukraine and Russia have been coordinating humanitarian corridors along which residents will be evacuated either towards Kyiv or towards territories controlled by the republics of Donbass and the Russian Federation.

Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk announced on March 15 that the Kiev authorities plan to take out about 200 thousand people from Mariupol. On March 22, Russian Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev said that over 68 thousand people had already been evacuated from the city without the participation of Kyiv. A catastrophic humanitarian situation is emerging in the city, both sides say.
