The Ukrainian Embassy in Thailand urges Ukrainian citizens to stay in Myanmar to avoid traveling across this country, to avoid mass gatherings, and to stay indoors. The press office of the diplomatic institution reported that on February 1.

"Taking into consideration the information about taking power by the military in Myanmar on February 1, and the introduction of the state of emergency, complications in terms of security in this country are quite possible", reads the message.

The Embassy also asked Ukrainians to find any opportunity to report their whereabouts in Myanmar - in spite of the current issues with telephone communications and Internet coverage in this country.

A military coup took place in Myanmar on early Monday, February 1. The troops arrested President U Wyn Myint, State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, and other top-rank statesmen. Press secretary of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD), Dr. Myo Nyunt said so in a commentary for Xinhua. The official added that he himself would be detained soon, either.

As the arrests were conducted, the military TV of Myanmar announced the state of emergency in this country, which is supposed to last one year. The MRTV, the state-run television, and radio ceased to work. Telecommunications in the capital and some other regions are down.
