In total, there are about 4,000 Ukrainians in Lebanon, but the exact number cannot be determined, because some have returned to Ukraine due to the coronavirus.

The Internet and telephone communications in Beirut work intermittently, so Ukrainians are asked to contact the Ukrainian embassy in Lebanon at the earliest opportunity and register in the "Friend" system so that the Embassy knows that everything is fine with the citizens.

As we reported before, August 4, videos began to appear in social networks, showing the blast that thundered in Beirut, the capital and the largest city of Lebanon. The media reported that the death toll exceeded 100, and 4,000 people were injured. The surroundings of the scene were in ruins.
