Ukrainian authorities have begun evacuating civilians from recently liberated sections of the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, fearing that a lack of heat, power and water due to Russian shelling will make living conditions too difficult this winter.

They urged residents of the two southern regions, which Russian forces have been shelling for months, to move to safer areas in the central and western parts of the country.

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said Monday that the government would provide transportation, accommodations and medical care for them, with priority for women with children, the sick and the elderly.

Vereshchuk last month asked citizens now living abroad not to return to Ukraine for the winter to conserve power. Other officials have suggested that residents in Kyiv or elsewhere who have the resources to leave Ukraine for a few months should do so to save power for hospitals and other key facilities.The WHO delivered a chilling warning Monday about the energy crisis' human impact on Ukraine."This winter will be life-threatening for millions of people in Ukraine," said the WHO's regional director for Europe, Dr Hans Henri P.
