The government of Ghana has announced that it has begun processes to evacuate Ghanaian students who are stranded in war-hit Ukraine, an official statement on Friday said.

It comes after Russian forces invaded Ukraine, with missile strikes and explosions reported near major cities and on its military infrastructure.

In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said discussions with authorities in Switzerland, Turkey, Moldova, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia to assist with the smooth evacuation of Ghanaian students in Ukraine are far advanced.

“Following the closure of the Ukrainian airspace, it had become challenging to airlift our compatriots from Kiev and other parts of the country. Hence the only viable means of evacuation is by land to neighbouring countries such as Moldova, Belarus, Slovakia and Hungary.

“The government has put in place the necessary package to facilitate the transportation, accommodation, feeding, medical support etc to ease the burden on our compatriots,” the statement said.

“The Ministry through its missions in Berne, Switzerland and the Honorary Consulate in Ukraine are in touch with the Ghanaian students in Ukraine through its leaders. A list of student have been compiled to facilitate the evacuation,” the statement said.
