There are 90 Ukrainians remaining in Afghanistan – Kuleba


Currently, 90 Ukrainians and members of their families remain in Afghanistan. The Foreign Ministry promises to evacuate anyone who wishes to do so.

UA reported this with reference to the Facebook page of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba.

“Those are citizens of Ukraine and members of their families. For example, a husband is a citizen of Ukraine and his wife and children are citizens of Afghanistan. But because it is a family, we help them all get out” – the minister explained.

According to the Foreign Minister, priority in evacuation will be given to citizens of Ukraine despite requests from other countries and organizations to evacuate their citizens or Afghans.

Dmytro Kuleba added that Ukraine has already deported more than 250 Ukrainians, members of their families and foreigners. The first evacuation flight brought 79 people to Ukraine, the second – 83 people, and the third – 98 people.

To remind, 65 citizens of Afghanistan, who were evacuated by Ukraine, applied for refugee status in the country.
