Russian troops besieging Mariupol in Ukraine do not allow the evacuation of Turkish citizens trapped in Suleiman the Magnificent. A fleet of 20 bus evacuation transports, 70 kilometers from the city, can be advanced in inches by Russian military firing. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has contacted Moscow so that they can evacuate as soon as possible.
Thousands of 582 people died
The situation in Mariupol, which has been besieged by Russian troops since March 1, has become more severe over time. Russian troops are violently attacking the city from the air and from the ground. The city was free of electricity, water, gas and heat for 13 days. Internet and mobile communications in the city have been largely non-existent since the base station was attacked. Ukrainian officials announced that as of noon yesterday, 1,582 civilians had died in the attack and the dead were unidentified and buried in a mass grave.
The convoy is on the road for 6 days
The evacuation of Turkish citizens who fled the bombs in a city with a population of 400,000 and evacuated to Suleiman the Magnificent continues. Twenty buses, which departed to evacuate the Turks and some Ukrainians, were waiting on the road for six days. Ismail Hasiogul, president of the Mosque Association, informed Yeni Shafak about the evacuation work and said the evacuation vehicle was 70 km away from the city.
Number increased to 110
Hacıoğlu said: “The departure of the 20-bus convoy is delayed due to the circumstances of the war. When the fire opens, the vehicle is moving very slowly. The shots are near the vehicle, left and right. It will be launched in the air. Work will begin as soon as the Russian army permits and the convoy enters the city, “he said. The number of people evacuated to the mosque has increased to 110, and the number of people from the surrounding area continues to increase, said Hashioguru, “this number will increase further. The address of the citizens of the city will be determined. I’m trying to get everyone together. “
Children are afraid
Hacıoğlu said: “Even if a vehicle enters the city, we estimate that evacuation can only be done tomorrow (today). Night trips are not safe. Random fires open from side to side and people move somewhere I’m afraid that if there is an evacuation, it will happen early in the day. The situation in the city is not encouraged. Russians are shooting everywhere without aiming. I have 34 children and I’m afraid of the sound of the bomb. I want to move the citizens to a safe place in a few days at the latest. “
The first food and humanitarian convoys sent to the area arrived in the city the evening before. However, aid was confiscated by Russian troops, and it was alleged that the convoy was looted before it reached the Ukrainian people.
Minister ÇAVUŞOĞLU announced
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Ça vuşoğlu evaluated the Turkish people in the region at the Antalya Diplomacy Forum. Minister Çavuşoğlu said:
Since the beginning of the war, we have sent warning messages to the public. Since the beginning of the war, we have evacuated 14,480 civilians. Especially in Mariupol, some citizens are staying in conflict zones. In the meeting with Viklov, we also discussed the issue of the humanitarian corridor. A humanitarian ceasefire and the opening of the corridor are needed, and we are discussing this issue with both sides. The city’s infrastructure is gone and it is not possible to contact citizens by phone. There are citizens in the mosque there. There were reports that the mosque was bombed, but the mosque’s Imam claim was denied. There is no damage to the mosque. Our bus has been waiting since yesterday, but we are waiting because the clashes have continued and the phone is not in use. We evacuate more than 90 percent of our citizens.
