Russian Aeroflot Airlines has offered the Ukrainian government its help in the evacuation of Ukrainian tourists from Nepal. This was stated by Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba during an online conference.
"There is an offer from the Russian company Aeroflot: for our citizens to board its plane. According to my information, the Russian consulate needs an official note from the Ukrainian consular office to take our citizens on board. We are exploring all the logistical possibilities in order to help them,” the minister said.
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, according to Ukraine's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, the further evacuation of Ukrainians from abroad will be inappropriate.
