A total of more than 600 citizens, including foreigners, were evacuated on Ukrainian planes from Afghanistan. This was stated by the head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak on his Facebook page.

“In addition to our compatriots, we also rescued foreigners - those who were in danger. Among them were journalists and human rights activists, women and children. In total, we have already taken out more than 600 people. Ukraine responded to the partners' appeal with a request to save their citizens. We also evacuated reporters from international publications, in particular Globe and Mail, WSJ, USA Today, Stars and Stripes," Yermak said.

According to the head of the President's Office, Ukrainian citizens can still remain in other places in Afghanistan, and the Ukrainian authorities will take care of them. The President's Office constantly monitors the situation. The hotline of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is open 24 hours a day. Yermak assured that not a single compatriot in trouble will be left to fend for themselves.

Meanwhile, Taliban forces sealed off Kabul’s airport to most Afghans hoping for evacuation and most NATO nations flew out their troops after two decades in Afghanistan, winding down a frantic airlift that Western leaders acknowledged was still leaving many of their citizens and local allies behind.
