Ukraine will announce later on Aug. 28 the mandatory evacuation of children from two front-line districts of Zaporizhzhia Oblast, Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Iryna Vereshchuk said on television.

"Today we will have a meeting of the evacuation headquarters, where we will announce a mandatory evacuation of children from two districts of Zaporizhzhia Oblast: the Vasylivka and Polohy districts," Vereshchuk said.

"We have to evacuate 54 children from five settlements," she added.

The official noted that there is already mandatory evacuation of children underway in the Vovchansk community in the Kupiansk district of Kharkiv Oblast, as well as in Donetsk Oblast.

According to Governor Pavlo Kyrylenko, there are 89 children still living in the front-line settlements of Donetsk Oblast after officials announced the mandatory evacuation of minors from nine settlements in the area earlier in August.

The evacuation of civilians from parts of the Kupiansk district was ordered in response to the growing concentration of Russian forces in the area since July.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
