Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry is seeking sponsors to help Ukrainians, who are unable to return to Ukraine, come back to their homeland. This was stated by Deputy Foreign Minister Yehor Bozhok, Ukrinform reports.
"When we exhaust all the possibilities, and when hubs and other countries completely block all transportation, and we go under total quarantine, we have a spare option during that period. We will try to find ways to financially help our citizens who will remain abroad for one reason or another," Bozhok said.
The situation with the return of Ukrainians from Latin America and the Caribbean is problematic.
"First, it is the distance. Second, it is the quarantine and local restrictions. And third, it is the number of citizens. There are places where we have five, two, three countrymen," the diplomat explained.
As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and IMF Head Kristalina Georgieva discussed an increase in assistance to Ukraine during the coronavirus epidemic.
"We have discussed the increase in the amount of Ukraine's support from the Fund in the face of major challenges to the economy, related to the global pandemic," Zelensky said.
