There was no evacuation, but the panic during the explosions did not arise. Iryna Lerman, an eyewitness, told about the terrorist attack at the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul to "112 Ukraine".

She passed the passport control to flight to Ankara as the explosions occurred in front of her, Iryna says.

At first there was a bang, but it was not clear what was happening.

"But after the second explosion, which was far away, of course, people rushed to escape. I cannot say that there was the panic; apparently the Turks are accustomed to these things. We went into the transfer zone, and in a while, not far from there, there was a third blast and the shooting, "she says, noting that the evacuation has not occurred.

Lerman does not know whether there were more Ukrainians near the explosion site, because she was on the inside line of the terminal, where, as a rule, citizens of Turkey are registered.
