The Ukrainian government has ordered the mandatory evacuation of Donetsk, the eastern region that is the scene of fierce fighting with Russian forces, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said today.

In a televised address to the public late in the evening, Zelenskyy said that hundreds of thousands of people who are still in conflict zones in the wider area of ​​Donbas must also leave.

–  The more people who leave Donetsk now, the fewer people the Russian army will have time to kill – he said, adding that the evacuees would receive compensation.

–  Many refuse to leave, but it still needs to be done. If you have a chance, please talk to those who are still in the conflict zones in Donbass. Please, convince them that they have to leave – said Zelenskyy.
