More than 317,000 people were recorded leaving Slovakia for Ukraine. Not the first day. If we take a closer look at the data from the last few days, the trend of departure to Ukraine is quite visible. According to information regarding the Slovakian-Ukrainian border, 3,534 people passed through the border crossings on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at the entrance to the Slovak Republic, the press department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications reported. Of these, there were 842 men, 2,119 women and 573 children. 141 applicants applied for temporary shelter.

The initial panic of some Slovaks with unpleasant forecasts that the Ukrainians will settle in Slovakia and the Slovak people will not have enough work or products is evidently not fulfilled even in the fourth month since the start of the war. The fighting has not stopped Despite the relatively peaceful situation in Slovakia, the fighting in the eastern neighbors continues. Strong explosions rocked the Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv early Saturday morning. This was announced by the mayor of the city, Olexandr Senkevyč, who called on residents to stay in shelters on the Telegram social network. TASR took over the report from the Reuters agency. Before the explosions, sirens announcing an air raid could be heard in the Mykolaiv region. The cause of the explosions was not immediately known. It was not possible to verify these reports. On Friday, three Russian missiles hit a residential building 40 kilometers southwest of the Black Sea port city of Odessa. According to the Ukrainian Civil Defense, at least 21 people were killed and 39 injured in this attack. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi described the rocket attack on the residential building as targeted. Kyiv claims that Moscow has intensified rocket attacks with long-range missiles and is hitting civilian targets far from the front line. Russia, on the other hand, claims that it is targeting military targets. Thanks for reading Startitup.
