According to the ambassador, more than 250 Ukrainian citizens, family members and foreign citizens have already been evacuated from Afghanistan. Most of these people were transported through three Ukrainian evacuation flights, 20 citizens (one still had two relatives) were evacuated by the international partners of our country.
Up to half a million Afghans could flee the crisis in their homeland. This was reported by Kelly Clements, Deputy UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
"In terms of numbers we are preparing for around 500,000 new refugees in the region. This is a worst case scenario.While we have not seen large outflows of Afghans at this point, the situation inside Afghanistan has evolved more rapidly than anyone expected," Kelly Clements said.
