France, Turkey, Greece to Launch Humanitarian Aid in Mariupol

French President Emmanuel Macron said after the EU summit in Brussels that France was working with Turkey and Greece on a “humanitarian operation” to evacuate all those who wish to leave Mariupol under attack by Russian forces, media reported on 25 March.

Macron said, “I will have a new discussion with (Russian) President Vladimir Putin within the next 48 to 72 hours to work out the details and secure the modalities.” He expressed his hope to “be able to involve the maximum number of stakeholders in this operation” and conduct the evacuation “in the next few days.”

Macron said that French officials had spoken to the mayor of Mariupol and that the 150,000 remaining residents were left trapped in “dramatic conditions.” The Mariupol municipality officials said that more than 2,000 people had been killed. Russia has made the port city a major focus of its brutal onslaught on Ukraine as it tries to link up the annexed Crimea peninsula with Moscow-controlled areas in the east.
