He said Ukrainians were forced to get stuck in Argentina, who had to go home. There is currently no direct communication with Ukraine. The six countries that sent planes for their compatriots, whom the Ukrainian side asked to help the return of our citizens from Argentina, were refused.
“We have also launched an appeal to the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ask it to consider the admission of Ukrainian citizens to a special evacuation flight of Turkish airlines, organized by the Turkish authorities for their compatriots in Buenos Aires. And in this case, we received a positive response, for which we are very grateful. said the diplomat.
