430 Ukrainian citizens have been evacuated from Turkey. These are the people who could not return home from the moment of shutting the border down on March 16. Oleksandr Aman, Ukraine's Consul General in Istanbul posted that on Twitter.
"430 Ukrainian citizens have just departed from Istanbul to Kyiv with two SkyUp flights. 100 Ukrainians stay in the transit area of Istanbul airport. We continue to render maximum cooperation to our compatriots to ease the conditions of their stay in the airport and the fastest possible return to Ukraine", the diplomat wrote.
Earlier, March 22, a cargo-passenger ferry arrived at the port of Chornomorsk (Odesa region) from the port of Karasu (Turkey). According to Radio Liberty correspondent, there were about a hundred people on board. These were, in particular, those who could not get home by air after Ukraine suspended international regular flights with other countries in connection with the pandemic of Covid-19 coronavirus infection. The passengers filled out the forms recommended by the Ministry of Health, in which they indicated the country they came from and left their contacts. They also received a memo on self-isolation and recommendations on the actions in case their health worsens.
