An operation to evacuate the Greek Consulate General in Mariupol of some of its staff and Greek citizens that are in the area was in progress on Wednesday, diplomatic sources reported. The convoy was made up to 21 cars carrying 82 people, led by Ambassador Fragkiskos Kostellenos.

According to the same sources, it is difficult for the convoy to always stay together and the party is using its own means of transport. Apart from consulate staff, the evacuees include all the journalists housed at the consulate and Greek citizens who have decided to leave due to the security situation in Mariupol and also because the Russian side announced that a humanitarian corridor will open on Wednesday for civilians leaving Mariupol to head west.

The plan is for the convoy to go to the city of Zaporizhzhia and then, depending on the prevailing conditions, continue to the Moldovan border, where they will be met by a team from the Greek Embassy in Bucharest, led by Ambassador Sofia Grammata, which will provide all possible assistance.

Mariupol Consul General Manolis Androulakis will remain at the consulate, which will continue to operate.
