CNN spoke to some evacuees from Mariupol's embattled Azovstal steel plant as they arrive in Ukraine-controlled Zaporizhzhia.
An elderly woman who emerged from a bus was carrying small amounts of medicine, a plastic cup, a toothbrush, a tissue paper — the things she was living off over the past weeks.
"I have nobody here. I don't know where to go now," she told CNN.
She had been sheltering in Azovstal for weeks and hadn't seen the sun in days.
"You can see in the exhaustion of her face. And you can see the head torch around her neck. She's clearly been living in the dark," CNN's Nick Paton Walsh reported.
Not having seen the sunlight in days meant she was now having some difficulty seeing, he added.
Civilians evacuated from the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol have arrived in Zaporizhzhia.
CNN's team saw the arrival of five buses with evacuees and witnessed emotional scenes, as the evacuees emerged from the buses and were greeted by volunteers.
After getting off the buses, the evacuees are heading to tents that the Ukrainian government has set up to help them with the next part of their journey.
