Schools in the Russian city of Belgorod and municipalities bordering Ukraine in the Belgorod region are transitioning to remote learning, announced Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov.

“In the 30-kilometer zone from the state border, conducting classes and extracurricular activities is unfortunately impossible today,” Gladkov wrote on Telegram.

He also stated that 5,000 children have already been evacuated from Belgorod Oblast to other parts of Russia. In particular, on 29 March, 1,300 children have arrived in St. Petersburg, Bryansk, and Makhachkala, according to Gladkov.

On March 19th, the authorities of Belgorod Oblast announced plans to evacuate around 9,000 children to other Russian regions.
