Victoria Obidina, paramedic, mother of four-year-old Alyssa, was released from #captivity

Mother and daughter spent two months together in the shelter at "#Azovstali". During the #evacuation of civilians on May 7, the occupiers separated Victoria from Alisa.
The girl went to her relatives in #Zaporozhye, and her mother remained in captivity.

Today, the doctor was released as part of the exchange.

The #Russians wanted to take away the child's childhood and the most precious thing - the mother, but it didn't work out.
Let all children wait for their parents, and relatives - their Heroes from captivity.

OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: My 88 year old grandmother in Venice, FL suggested riding out the storm in her mobile home. No ma’am. Grandson is on the way. Chronicling my journey to get MIMI (or grandmama) to safety. I need safe travels and plentiful gasoline #HurricaneIan #Evacuation Image
OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: brilliant sunset leaving Gainesville, down I-75. It’s the whole God is a gator vibe. Mimi aka grandmama is 88 year old Denise Pirhalla and not much of a gator fan. She’s lived in Venice 25+ years and has never evacuated for a hurricane. #hurricaneIan ImageImage
OPERATION RESCUE MIMI: my gut just told me to get off at an exit in Sumter County to top off my gas tank. My Jetta can go far, but not 400 miles roundtrip on reg unleaded. Thank you @bp_America and @TATravelCenters for keeping us all going- literally. #HurricaneIan #evacuation Image

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...

I have been watching videos of our young citizens stranded in Ukraine making fervent pleas for evacuation. It is heart wrenching to see their plight. I can understand their desperation to get back home safely. But when a war is raging in that country and there is so much 1/3
uncertainty on the ground, and when operational links are broken, it is only fair that we support our officers and embassies to focus on the job at hand. I know from experience that these operations can be tough and delicate. Let us not politicise the evacuation process.2/3
It will demoralise those conducting the operation. Scoring points at this hour of crisis will make us look bad. Let us work together.3/3

The #Taliban Interior Ministry in a letter, instructed Afghanistan border police, to #prevent_the_evacuation of Afghan citizens by foreign countries.
The ministry's letter states that border control officials are obliged to prevent evacuation operations by the US& NATO countries. Image
When #Taliban's spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid was asked about #evacuation & specifically the above mentioned letter, he said that "we have banned the evacuation process until make sure that what fate awaits #Afghans who are already evacuated. Over 5,000 evacuated Afghans are ...
...still kept in wretched conditions in temporary camps in Doha. Also, many Afghans in Turkey are living in dire situation with unclear future. We can't put more Afghans at risk&won't allow others misuse them. #Protecting Afghans is the responsibility of the government (#IEA) ...

#Taliban spokesman said that 40 people were #arrested in #Balkh today for trying #to_fly_abroad #illegally.
"They were temporarily detained for questioning and later most of them were released. Only, the #women whose families (male family members) didn't come yet ... take them home, are still in custody. Arrangements are made for them (for the women who are still in custody) in the women's detention center."
This is the first time that the Taliban officially confirmed that they barred people from going (illegally???) abroad.
It is more likely that the #Taliban have arrested& prevented from flying out, those Afghans who are in the #evacuation& rescue program of the international community. The Afghans, who are allegedly at risk of persecution from the TB& get evacuated without proper travel documents.

1/4 U.S. govt-funded militias known as NDS Zero Units secured the northern perimeter of #Kabul airport during the #evacuation. A U.S. interpreter & her family were beaten by them & told they needed $5,000pp to pass. Other Afghans corroborate claims of #bribery. #afghanistan
2/4 Zero Units were funded and run by the #CIA. Evacuee hopefuls told us these units let anyone inside Kabul airport who would pay - some without identification and many without a case for #evacuation. @AJEnglish also filmed secretly as they beat evacuees at the gates.
3/4 Zero Units are accused of widespread human rights abuses in #Afghanistan. Yet they were airlifted out - ahead of US passport/visa holders and U.S. allies. Many of you are asking if the majority of US #interpreters weren’t on those planes. - who was? A:

As U.S. Embassy's sole consular officer in #SouthSudan 2013-2014, I've been at the airport running #evacuations out of a country at war. Risk & scale differed from #Afghanistan, but some challenges on the ground were similar. A thread to share things I learned on the ground. 1/17
There is no graceful way to evac vulnerable people from a country at war. There are better ways & worse ways, but none look good from the outside (or inside). Things could have gone much better, but they also could have gone worse, and many challenges were inevitable. 2/17
The hardest part of evac'ing from a warzone is reaching the exit – airport in this case. USG didn’t control Kabul so it had few options to help and all put our people at risk. In South Sudan, we had some success moving a few people to the airport from inside Juba... 3/17
