High level of danger: Poland calls on its citizens to leave Russia
Poland, following Estonia and Bulgaria, appealed to its citizens living on the territory of the Russian Federation and urged them to leave the aggressor country.
The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs also advises its fellow citizens to refrain from traveling to Russia.
This was reported by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Twitter.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises to avoid any trips to the Russian Federation in connection with the war in Ukraine and the recognition of Poland by the authorities of the Russian Federation as an unfriendly state“, the message says.
The Polish ministry noted that due to a significant reduction in the number of Polish diplomatic and consular workers in Russia, the possibilities of providing direct consular assistance to Polish citizens are very limited.
“In the event of a sharp deterioration in security situations, border closures or other unforeseen situations, evacuation may be significantly complicated or even impossible,” the Polish Foreign Ministry said.
