Russian rights commissioner asks UN to help evacuate women, children from MosulTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Moskalkova said she had ordered to prepare a request for the United Nations, the Russian Foreign Ministry and Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov to help with the establishment of a humanitarian corridor and assist in providing medical aid to those who will be evacuated from the city.

The rights commissioner stressed that she would be following the developments of the situation, and expressed her determination to address other international organizations to ensure creation of the safe corridors if necessary.

Mosul, the second largest Iraqi city, was completely liberated from Daesh terrorists in July.

During the occupation and the military operation to drive the terrorists from the city, Mosul's infrastructure was significantly damaged and its population suffered many losses.

UNICEF has assessed that up to 650,000 children in Mosul have been affected by the war. The UN estimated that some 700,000 Mosul residents have been displaced since the beginning of the conflict.
