German Foreign Ministry has assisted with the evacuation of 18 Ukrainian citizens from Nepal. It was announced by Deputy Foreign Minister Yehor Bozhok on his Twitter page.

"We are able to do it by combined efforts! A group of Ukrainian tourists is departing from Nepal. I would like to thank the German Foreign Ministry for its assistance, I would also like to thank Ukrainian diplomats in Kyiv and abroad for another professionally accomplished task," he wrote.

Ukrainian climbers were blocked in Nepal after the lockdown was introduced in Ukraine. They also could not return home because all flights were canceled due to the coronavirus.

Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba explained that the complexity of the situation with Nepal was related to its location and presence of problems with logistics.

"Nepal has the most resonant story of all the remotest countries. The alpinists have climbed Everest there, they have descended and now need our help. There is still a group of citizens in Latin America, but we are helping them there. Including 10 Ukrainian citizens who the Embassy in Argentina was able to place at the recreation center in order for them to live in decent conditions," he summed up.

As we reported earlier, Russian Aeroflot Airlines offered the Ukrainian government its help in the evacuation of Ukrainian tourists from Nepal.
