The passengers and crew members of the Boeing, which evacuated the Ukrainians and foreigners from Chinese Wuhan, feel good and prepare for the transfer to the medical examination center, as Healthcare Minister Zoriana Skaletska reported on Facebook.
“I would like to report that the evacuation of the citizens of Ukraine from China follows the plan. The passengers and crew members feel good and prepare for the transfer to the medical examination center. We are ready to meet them,” Skaletska wrote.
The minister has noted that all citizens have the same right for protection from the state, wherever they may be.
“We do not leave our people behind”.
The plane, which evacuated people from Wuhan, headed to Kyiv but changed the destination plane and went to Kharkiv. The aircraft was circling the city for about an hour but did not land in the Kharkiv airport. Possibly, due to the heavy fog.
Later the plane with the Ukrainians from Wuhan landed in the Boryspil Airport for refueling.
The Interior Ministry of Ukraine confirmed that the Ukrainians evacuated from Chinese city Wuhan would be accommodated in the medical facility of the National Guard Novi Sanzhary in the Poltava region.
Meanwhile, people started the protest in Novi Sanzhary. They stand against the accommodation of people evacuated from Wuhan in the medical facility. People blocked the roads; the clashes with law enforcers took place. The Interior Ministry noted that all illegal attempts of obstruction of accommodation of evacuated or violation of the regime of their isolation would be stopped by the National Police and the National Guard in accordance with the demands of the Law and the decision of the governmental HQ.
