The evacuation of the Ukrainians from Afghanistan will continue after August 31 as the Ukrainian diplomatic establishments have received a new wave of requests on the evacuation during the past days as UNN reported citing Spokesperson of the Foreign Ministry Oleh Nikolenko.
“Ukraine plans to continue the evacuation of the Ukrainians from Afghanistan after August 31. Meanwhile, the routes of return of our citizens can be corrected depending on the situation at the Kabul Airport,” he said.
Nikolenko noted that the risks of safety in Afghanistan continue to grow. According to him, on the order of Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, the diplomats together with the representatives of other establishments develop further safe routes of departure, including the possibility of use of other airport or ground routes.
According to the speaker, as soon as possible, all Ukrainian citizens, who notified the Ukrainian Embassy in Tadzhikistan, will get guidelines on further actions. “We work 24/7 and will not leave anyone to the mercy of fate,” Nikolenko underlined.
As we reported, a total of more than 600 citizens, including foreigners, were evacuated on Ukrainian planes from Afghanistan. The issue is about Ukrainians, members of their families, foreign journalists, human right activists and people, who faced threats. The situation in the country remains unstable amid the end of the withdrawal of the U.S. troops.
