During two days most patients of the institution will be transported to Lutsk, Odesa, Kyiv, and Kyiv region.

Yuriy Shparaha, head of the Regional Social Protection Department, said that out of 98 evacuees -19 are seriously ill.

“Since they are bedridden, they cannot be transported over long distances. Therefore, it was decided to evacuate them to similar institutions in safer places in Kharkiv region,” added Yuriy Shparaha.

In total, there are 7 residential institutions in the de-occupied territories where citizens stay 24/7, they have disabilities and need constant care, Kharkiv RMA reported.
