Ukraine asks citizens to leave Russia ‘immediately’

Ukraine encouraged its citizens to leave Russia immediately on Wednesday, citing the prospect of a Russian invasion that would make it difficult to provide consular services.

“Because of Russia’s escalating aggression against Ukraine, which could result in a significant reduction in possible consular assistance in Russia, the foreign ministry of Ukraine urges Ukrainian citizens to refrain from traveling to Russia and those already there to leave the country immediately,” the ministry said.
