• The western part of Ukraine is relatively safe because there is very little military activity going on there.
• Kenyans have also been advised to make an assessment as to their circumstances and to take necessary precaution
The government of Kenya, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, has said that Kenyan citizens in Ukraine are safe.
Through its mission in Vienna, the government issued a cautionary advisory note to all Kenyans in Ukraine.
“So far all the Kenyans in Ukraine are reported to be safe. Some Kenyans however have been stuck at border points, particularly with Poland where because of visa restrictions they have not been able to cross over,” the Ministry said.
Kenyans have also been advised to make an assessment as to their circumstances and take necessary precautions and or make arrangements to leave as they deem fit in light of their own circumstances.
The ministry said that it is in touch with all the neighbouring countries of Ukraine within the EU to seek their accommodation and to allow Kenyans to transit through their countries should they wish to return home.
It added that the western part of Ukraine is relatively safe because there is very little military activity going on there.
Also, Kenyans have been encouraged to harbour there as they wait for the situation to settle down and or as they make their plans to come home.
