Nigeria Address Citizens In Ukraine Amid Russian Invasion

KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Russian President, Vladimir Putin ordered a military operation in Ukraine on Thursday morning with explosions heard soon after in the capital and other parts of the country.

Reacting to the development in a statement on Thursday, February 24, the Nigerian embassy in Kiev asked Nigerian nationals living in Ukraine that they are “responsible for their personal security and safety.”

The embassy asked those who want to temporarily relocate from Ukraine to ensure they validate their resident documents for ease of return, adding that it will remain open for consular duties for Nigerians who decide to stay in Ukraine during the crisis.

The statement read, “The attention of the Embassy has been drawn to a declaration of State of Emergency, and Martial Law on the entire territory of Ukraine, except the Donestk and Luhansk regions by the government of Ukraine, effective from mid-night of February 23, 2022, for a period of 30 days as well as the latest development on the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

“In view of the development, the Embassy urges Nigerian nationals resident in Ukraine to remain calm but be very vigilant and responsible for their personal security and safety.

“The Embassy wishes to add that should any Nigerian national consider the situation as emotionally disturbing, such national may wish to relocate to anywhere considered safe by private arrangements. They should, however, ensure that they do all the needful to validate all their resident documents for ease of return to the country when desired.

“In addition, in case of students seeking such temporary relocation, they are enjoined to seek proper clearance and guarantee from their respective institutions, authorities/agents on the way forward in respect to their studies during the period and/or thereafter.

“For those who still consider it appropriate to remain in the country, be assured that the Embassy remains open for its consular duties and responsibilities at all times. It will always avail you updates when necessary.”

Last week, the UK and US Government had asked their citizens in Ukraine to leave the country immediately amid the possibility of a military operation by Russia.
