Buses sent to evacuate Latvian nationals from Ukraine

23 Latvian nationals have asked for help to leave Ukraine, and several buses have already left Latvia for Ukraine to take these people out of the country, Zanda Kalniņa-Lukaševica, Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (New Unity party), said this in an interview with Latvian Radio February 25.

Kalniņa-Lukaševica said the first Latvian citizens had already arrived in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, where the ministry is providing consular assistance. Accommodation services are provided to Latvian citizens there.

The first buses from Rīga have already gone to Lviv to help take Latvian citizens out of Ukraine. A bus will depart frmo the 'Sakura' hotel in Lviv at 06:00 on February 26.

However, movement in Ukraine is very difficult due to major congestion, so Latvian citizens have to be patient. 

Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs (New Unity) repeated a call for anyone else requiring evacuation to make their way immediately to Lviv.
