Preparations are underway to evacuate Uzbek citizens from Ukraine

Given the escalating situation in Ukraine, the Uzbek embassy in Kiev is drawing up a plan to evacuate Uzbeks and a list of those who want to leave the country.

Appropriate evacuation routes will be agreed with the interested third party services. Citizens of Uzbekistan will be additionally informed about this on the website of the embassy and on social networks.

All Uzbek citizens wishing to leave Ukraine can send their passport information to the embassy's e-mail address.

"We urge Uzbek citizens in Ukraine to remain calm and contact the embassy if they have any further questions," the embassy said in a statement.
