Russia – Ukraine War: Air Peace to Begin Evacuation of Nigerians from Wednesday – Onyeama

Air Peace may begin the evacuation of Nigerians from Ukraine on Wednesday, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, said on Monday.

He stated this during a meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Onyeama said the evacuation will be done following the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari.

With Ukraine still at war with Russia and a no-fly zone effective across the country, the evacuation is expected to take place from neighbouring countries.

Earlier on Monday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said about 256 Nigerians have been received in Poland, Hungary and Romania by Nigerian embassies in those countries.

Nigerians have continued to flee Ukraine after Russia invaded the East European nation last week.

Talks commenced between both parties on Monday but fighting has continued in Ukrainian cities.
