About 20,000 Ukrainians abroad have applied to Ukrainian diplomatic missions to help them return home. This was reported by Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on the air of Ukraine 24 TV Channel, RBC reports.
"20,000 Ukrainians are those who have expressed a desire to return to Ukraine and informed the consulates and embassies of Ukraine," Kuleba said.

According to Kuleba, tight control should be exercised in place for everyone who arrives in Ukraine.
