Departure from the temporarily occupied Luhansk region is currently not allowed to civilians by the invaders due to intense hostilities along the entire administrative border of the region, but there are options to get out of there on their own.
about it in his Telegram channel Head of the Luhansk Regional Military Administration Serhiy Gaidai said, Ukrinform reports.
“There are three exit options. One – through the Kharkiv region through the dam on foot: it is quite dangerous, because the dam is shelled there. The second option is through Zaporozhye, but there you have to stand in lines for a long time. And the third option is the longest, but perhaps it is more or less calm – this is through the Russian Federation, through the Baltic countries or to Georgia, and then go to Ukraine,” Gaidai said.
He added that the last way is very long. It will have to spend somewhere around 2.5-3 days. Plus, it’s not cheap.
“According to our information, people who were passing by paid, for example, from Severodonetsk to Luhansk about 9-10 thousand hryvnias ($245-270) to get there. And then in different countries, in order to leave both the occupation and the Russian Federation – about 300 euros,” the head of the Luhansk region specified.
As reported, on February 24, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops shell and destroy key infrastructure facilities, carry out massive shelling of residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, air bombs and ballistic missiles.
