CAIRO - 24 February 2022: Egypt, with great concern, is following up on the recent developments of the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which could escalate further and be out of control, said Ambassador Osama Abdel-Khalek, Egypt’s permanent representative to the United Nations in New York on Thursday at the UNSC emergency session on the crisis.
The language of dialogue and diplomatic solutions is a must to preserve international security and stability, said the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement on Thursday.
Russia launched a full-scale attack on Ukraine late Wednesday, with smoke being seen above the city.
The Egyptian Embassy in Kyiv called on Egyptian nationals residing not to leave their homes as the Russian troops launched strikes on Ukraine.
The Egyptian embassy advised nationals in Kyiv to keep identification documents and to follow instructions issued by the Ukrainian authorities until the situation stabilizes.
This comes in light of the development of the Ukrainian crisis, the imposition of martial law and the closure of airspace as well as trains.
The embassy added - through its page on the social networking site "Facebook" today, Thursday - that it will provide the members of the community with any additional instructions through the site.
The Ministry of State for Immigration and Egyptian Affairs Abroad stated that it is constantly following up on the status of the Egyptian community in Ukraine, and communicating with the heads of the community and Egyptian scholars there, to follow up on developments in the situation.
