“We have recently started to carry out targeted applications for people search. In all this time, we have assisted in the restoration of family ties on 4 thousand applications, and we have found more than 100 people in Mariupol and this number is only growing.”
On March 30, the first group of United Russia’s Young Guard volunteers and the “Volunteer Company”, consisting of 50 people, arrived on the territory of Donbass. Among the volunteers are doctors, psychologists, as well as people with extensive experience in emergency situations. The volunteer camp is deployed in two locations near Mariupol: in the village of Bezymennoye and the village of Volodarskoye.
