Volunteer Galina Odnorog wrote this on her Facebook page: “Tomorrow (September 24) four cars, or maybe more, will be leaving for Chongar and on to Chaplinka… Mariupol and Crimea belong to Ukraine”.

The volunteer also mentioned vacant seats being available in the cars and invited everyone to join them.

A blockade aimed at preventing trucks carrying food to Crimea from reaching their destination has been in place since September 20. Only pedestrians and passenger cars are allowed in and out of Crimea.
