“Of course, the pace is very low and most people have no desire to leave. But this is as of now. The summer period has not yet ended. We understand that with the onset of cold weather, people will act differently. If we say that the evacuation is slow, then this a category of people who do not want to leave until the very end,” he said.
Kirilenko once again stressed that no one would forcibly relocate people and added that now enemy shelling was being carried out almost throughout the entire region.
