Ukraine has become one of the leaders among the European countries in the number of citizens evacuated from Afghanistan.

UA reports this with reference to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Thus, according to the agency, Ukraine has evacuated 700 people. Becoming the eighth in Europe after the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Denmark and Poland.

The Ministry of Defense, represented by the Central Intelligence Agency, worked on the planning and implementation of the operation. Its specialists have developed safe evacuation routes and escorted people leaving the country.

According to the Ministry of Defense, this result demonstrates reliability of Ukraine as an international partner to the world community.

Ukrainian efforts did not go unnoticed – in the Netherlands, the country’s mainstream media wrote about the successful operation, and independent Belarusian journalists called Ukraine a “true friend of the Belarusian people.”

Social networks have also reacted to the fact – users from a number of European countries set Ukraine as an example and admired the results of its work.

Besides, earlier, the United States thanked Ukraine for evacuating people from Kabul.
