Greece Renews Call for Humanitarian Corridors out of Ukrainian Cities

ATHENS – The Greek Foreign Affairs Ministry on Friday renewed its call on behalf of Greece for the creation of humanitarian corridors leading from Ukrainian cities, in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, in order to allow food supplies to reach civilians and allow residents to leave for safer areas.

In its statement, the ministry said “we continue to follow with great concern the dramatic developments, especially in the region of Mariupol, where Greek diaspora has been living for centuries and where Consul General Manolis Androulakis remains.”

The ministry called on “everyone to respect humanitarian law and avoid targeting civilians,” adding that Greece is expending every effort toward this.
