“They are all people with severe frailties who need specialist care that is currently impossible to receive in Ukraine,” says Ignazio Schintu, CRI’s Director of Emergency Operations.

“Many of them are fleeing the areas most affected by the conflict and have faced long and difficult journeys to reach Lviv where the evacuation took place.”

This is the third evacuation mission to Lviv for the ICRC, which in total has brought some 300 people to Italy to date.
