Over 230,000 Ukrainians have been evacuated to the motherland since the lockdown limitations began worldwide. Yevhen Yenin, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine, said that in an interview for Radio Liberty.

According to the Ukrainian diplomat, the procedure carries on, in spite of certain difficulties that are due to peculiar circumstances in various countries.

On May 13, Boryspil airport hosted two flights from Amsterdam and Athens; the aircraft brought 287 Ukrainian citizens back home.

Ukraine resumed the practice of evacuation of citizens from abroad with special flights in late April.

The level of infection with coronavirus in Ukraine is lower than in Europe and the United States, but the statistics are real. The speaker of the parliament Dmytro Razumkov stated this on the air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"In Ukraine, no one is adding anything (to this data). Fortunately, we have lower rates than in European countries, in the USA. The fact that a state of emergency has been declared in all US states is an indicator. What we saw in Europe is unfortunately not a horror film, this is reality. The fact that we see the spread of this disease throughout the world is also true," said Razumkov.

The new disease affects not only people but also economies, the global structure of the world as a whole. The consequences of this process, according to Razumkov, are unpredictable.
