Ukraine has decided on a mandatory evacuation of 802 children from 23 settlements in the Kherson Oblast due to “the challenging security situation,” Ukraine’s Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories announced on 23 October.

The decision of the Kherson Oblast Military Administration was unanimously supported by members of the Coordination Headquarters for Mandatory Evacuation of the Population Under Martial Law, the ministry statement said. The evacuation will be carried out from settlements in the Beryslav, Kakhovka, and Kherson districts.

According to the announcement, the evacuation will be conducted free of charge by rail and bus, with children relocated to Khmelnytskyi, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Lviv, and other Ukraine’s oblasts. Around 100 children will be housed in a health resort in Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast.

The evacuated children accompanied by a parent or legal caretaker “will be provided with payments, free shelter, humanitarian aid, psychological support, etc.,” the statement detailed.
